In this episode, we continue exploring how our primitive brain works and how we can get it to work for us with the power of habits.
Habits are extremely useful and powerful tools for our brains, especially in this day and age where we are faced with tens of thousands of decisions every single day. Habits are automated behaviours, taking stress and pressure off our brain to make many of those decisions.
That automation is a great method to shield us from decision fatigue and allow us to go about our day, but (there’s always a “but!”) when those hardwired habits aren’t healthy ones, or are habits that keep us stuck in patterns, or even are self-defeating, they are a problem.
The great news? We can re-wire our brains and we can choose to create amazing habits that help us become who we want to be and obtain our goals and dreams!
