So if we have any sort of bad habit (all of us do) which we want to get rid of, we have to think what good habit can we change this into. Because if we just simply try not to do the bad habit and leave the empty need unfilled - it will come back to us eventually.
So how about creativity? Can it replace some of our bad habits?
I believe it can. Whenever you feel the need for (insert the name of the bad habit here), go do something creative (play the organ, write, make, build, paint, draw, invent, compose, improvise, teach, share, you name it) and watch the urge for the bad habit slowly fade away over time.
Just a thought.
