One of the all-time most popular topics is habits, and how to successfully create and stick with them.
Some will tell you it takes 30 days, others will say you have to start small and yet others will tell you the bigger the habit the better. So what should you believe?
Our guest for today’s show explains there isn’t really a one-size-fits-all approach to creating habits. Gretchen Rubin, New York Times best-selling author. Her latest book, Better Than Before, is about how to create good habits and break bad ones.
On this episode we explore why different people need different strategies to create habits, and how habits for the everyday aspects of life like diet, exercise and sleep can impact our overall happiness.
