185 Habits to Fix Your Body and Life

Tags: , ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.



Today’s show is going to be worth the investment of your time! Exciting things are going on at Her Rules Radio! I’m happy to announce that we are going to begin podcasting very soon from The Wing in downtown Brooklyn – it’s an amazing co-working space and I can’t be more excited!

Habits are so important to your health and success. There is so much that we now understand about the psychology of our brain and how habits are formed. Today, we are taking a deep dive into how you can create habits that improve your life. We are creatures of habit, so we have to pay attention how to reframe them.

There are a lot of reasons that we develop habits. Some of them come from cravings that we give in to. Smoking is a habit that is developed and your brain wants to be soothed by it. These habits exert so much control over people that we actually build our lives around the habit. Today we’re talking about how to use your biological cravings to develop habits that help you create the life you love.
