Atomic Habits in Review: Making Changes that Stick
In a world where quick fixes are often sought after, it becomes essential to examine the foundations of our habits and how they affect our lives. Why now? Because amidst the fast-paced modern lifestyle, taking the time to refine and better ourselves can have profound impacts on our overall wellbeing. According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, it takes on average 66 days to form a habit. But what if we could accelerate this process and make our habits more effective?
What if we could find ways to make our habits stick and truly foster lasting changes? This is the core question we’re exploring in this episode of “Change Starts Here.”
