BJ Fogg ("Tiny Habits") acknowledges how hard it is to "break" a bad habit and recommends starting with replacing an undesirable habit with a desirable activity that satisfies the same or similar need, and building that desirable activity into a habit gradually.

If you spend time online when tired and then berate yourself for it, have you considered what you can replace this habit with that would be more constructive?

I try sometimes to read instead of being online but when tired I canít focus, likewise tv. I need to think on this some more, maybe something like putting some hand cream on might be nice.

I like both ideas: reading a physical book and putting hand cream.
