Thanks Ash for requesting an episode on Changing Habits!
2016 is upon us and it's a great time to stop old habits and start new ones. Actually, anytime is a great time to change habits but the trick is to make the new habit stick.
Today, I share my 6 Steps for Making Changes and Changing Habits.
Before I get into the 6 steps, I want to thank the Affirmation Pod Facebook Group for offering some habits they want to change, to help me frame this episode. Thank you!
Step 1: Describe the old habit
Step 2: Describe the new habit
Step 3: Why was the old habit here in the first place?
Step 4: How will you set yourself up for success?
Step 5: What will you do when tempted to return to the old habit?
Step 6: How will you measure and celebrate your success?

Feeling down about yourself? Struggling with setting boundaries? Wishing you were better at managing your emotions and staying grounded in the present?
Very often, we lose ourselves in the darkness of our own judgment. We allow our inner critic to drown out our voice of self-compassion, and find ourselves in a downward spiral of negativity - yikes!
But imagine what would happen if you started speaking to yourself kindly. Imagine if you embraced all parts of yourself - even the work in progress parts - and welcomed an abundance of self love into your heart, body, and mind.
