Making Changes and Changing Habits

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!

6 Steps for Making Changes and Changing Habits

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?
