Episode 229: The Shiny & Dark sides of Habit Change – My Personal Story

with Brodie Welch, L.Ac.

What would you really like to make time for on a regular basis, that somehow keeps getting pushed to the back burner? Whether it’s writing a book, starting a meditation practice, or dropping a few pounds, developing a consistent routine is often the key to realizing your goal.

And developing a new routine — or stopping an old behavior — is hard. And it’s about more than just willpower.

It takes time, energy, strategy, planning, and support.

It takes examining the emotional triggers, and being able to see what hidden subconscious forces might be holding us back.

In this episode, I not only share a win I’m pretty proud of, but also some of the healing that it took to make it happen. You’ll hear which tried-and-true techniques helped me succeed, and an old story I was forced to examine and break up with.  May it inspire you to Do the Thing!
