Building sustainable habits is HARD. The good news is, you’re not the problem. Messages from the fitness and nutrition industries lead us to believe that if you just try hard enough and buy their quick fix, you can shed those pounds, gain that muscle, and finally feel good about your body in a matter of weeks. But for those of us that have tried that approach again and again, we know that’s not true.
What’s missing is an understanding of HOW habits work, and how to build ones that last. That’s where this course comes in. I want to cut through the bullshit to help you understand how sustainable habit-building works, and which ones are most important for your long-term health.
In this class, you will learn the best principles and tools for designing better habits and then use them to complete a hands-on project: designing a sustainable daily habit to improve your productivity, creativity, health, or wellbeing.
