Building habits is a psychological discipline with many quirks and nuances. So many, in fact, that when we gathered info from a group of therapists who help their clients build habits on a regular basis, we found out there are a few interesting things they don't usually express. Here are these secrets and notable quotes about them:

  1. Professionals go to therapy, too. "You can really only do deep work if you are able to know who you are."

  2. Your difficulties building habits look manageable most of the times. "Someone's distress about their problem doesn't necessarily correlate with how big that problem objectively looks to others."

  3. They're always trying to help, but the path to success starts with yourself. "It's difficult to work with people who think everything is everybody else's fault and won't look at their own role in things."

  4. Your motivation makes it way easier to work on your habits. "There is desire to talk, to reflect, to change. You don't have to know how to do it; it's the fact that you want to do it."

  5. The worst unhealthy habit is usually drinking. "Excessive alcohol consumption, at a level not usually considered problematic, impacts people a lot more than they think it does."

  6. Therapists have no idea, how long the effect will last. "Not all of my clients keep in touch after we work together, so often don't get an idea of how many I have helped in a lasting way."

  7. Worried about what other people think? You're not alone! "My clients' worst fear is that everyone is looking at them and judging them."
