Some bad habits can be replaced with alternative behaviors. An example would be when anger is an issue. I remember my mom being quite the yeller when I was a kid. She finally got to a stage in life where she started to close her eyes and take a few deep breaths before she spoke again. This technique seemed to work wonders for her yelling fits. She would still get angry, but her anger didn’t cause others to become distressed as well.
