In your personal life, you can apply the goals of psychology to improve yourself, your relationships, your business, and even your career. For example, you can use it to develop a healthier lifestyle with new habits. Come up with a goal and describe your current thoughts and behaviors related to that goal in full detail. Try to introspect and explain why you may have behaved the way you currently do and predict your future thoughts and actions based on what you described and illustrated. Finally, try to change or control the behavior that is limiting you from reaching your goals. For example, if you have a terrible habit of eating junk food whenever you’re stressed, describe in detail your feelings during these moments. Explain why you may have behaved in such a way. Predict how you might behave in similar situations in the future, and substitute it with better behaviors like cooking and eating a healthy meal, munching on fruit, or even chewing some gum.
