When I overlooked health to discover the joy of smoking there was an immediate bond. Not only did I have no desire to quit but it was a behavior that integrated into every one of my day-to-day functions. Habits may be useful, dominating, or impoverished. They may also interfere with performance in areas of occupation.*
To support smoking I would dwell or create environments for it. Specific products suited for the behaviors of smoking were also in my surroundings. And that exceeds just ashtrays. I could smoke anywhere but the ideal experiences were in the comfort of it’s suited intention: to distress, to relax, to problem-solve. A space, plus its surroundings – people included – supported my performance needs of smoking and anxiety.

Our behaviors seek support in surrounding products, environments, and relationships. Identify one unhealthy lifestyle habit that may be domineering your performance. What’s one object in your space that supports it?
