Kick a Bad Habit Spread

On This Day

Every habit starts with a psychological pattern called a “habit loop.” This three-part process begins with a trigger, is followed by a routine, and ends with behavior. Understanding cue, routine, and reward, simply change the routine to something healthy and positive.

Today, the twelfth day after Christmas, or Twelfth Night, is known as Little Christmas in Ireland. Older calendars that use the Julian calendar mark today as the traditional Christmas celebration. Modern practices dictate today as the traditional end of the holiday season, when trimmings are removed and festoons are swept away till next year.

Summation of Spread

Swords are the wickedly sharp suit of elimination. Swords can feel frightful because they represent thoughts, calculation, and change. Embrace the fierceness of a sword when slicing away a habit.

Why not rid a bad habit as you clean? Remove decorations and make this task a magical metaphor. Decide a bad habit will be removed right along with holiday frill. This spread helps you identify and remove pesky habits, and it’s best done before decoration removal.

Cast Your Cards

In your mind’s eye, picture yourself free of the habit. Imagine yourself as you’d like to be. In a calm and focused manner, cast the cards in the shape of the holiday garland soon to be removed.
