Straight and Curly Ep 33: How to create good habits


The good folk in our Straight and Curly group on Facebook asked about creating good habits, and it was with absolute delight that we were able to put this episode together. Why are good habits important? It’s because:

  • They make life easier
  • They set you up beautifully for success (whatever ‘success’ looks like for you)

So how do we create good habits?

In this episode we cover:

  1. The importance of knowing yourself and how you respond to expectations
  2. Understanding the difference between intention and motivation
  3. That it’s very hard to break a habit, much easier to simply create a new, good habit that overrides the bad one
  4. That you shouldn’t attempt to create more than one new habit at a time
  5. That there is no set number of days for a new habit to take hold
  6. The importance of knowing your triggers for bad habits
  7. How to set yourself up for success
