Plainview, NY, April 21, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- On April 4, 2011, Dr. Karen Sherman was interviewed by Kristen Mews on her radio show, Your Personal Best, on WKRS, 1220AM. A lively and informative discussion ensued in which Dr. Sherman explained that depending on the habit, different approaches are necessary:
- Some addictions like sugar, smoking, or drugs will entail a physiological weaning process.
- Basic habits like deciding to exercise is best remedied by making sure you do the new behavior for 21 days straight.
- Many behaviors are really the outward manifestations of underlying emotional issues. In this case, addressing the root of the problem will be the only way to get lasting change in behavior.
Sherman also stated, "It's difficult for many people to make changes because they're comfortable doing what they've always done and change requires doing the unknown. However, with the right tools, change is possible and can lead to a life of satisfaction and joy."
