Mentioned in this episode
At the start of the New Year many of us make a list of goals and intentions but miss the important step of evaluating the daily activities that are required to reach those achievements.
Our lives are the sum of our habits. How we spend our time, consciously and unconsciously, will determine the trajectory of our lives. But the problem for many of us is that it’s easy to start habits… and really difficult to maintain them.
In our brand new free mini-course, How to Hack Your Emotional Health (And Why You Can’t Afford Not To), we’re going to look at what it takes to establish habits that we can actually keep, ones that we don’t abandon after a week, and how they can help us pursue and live into the future we want to live in every area of our lives!
