"This is Just How I Am” is Bullsh*t

Today I’m here to talk to you about habits. We all have them, whether we realize we do or not. We develop them throughout our entire life — and most of them, we learn super early in our life. The only problem with some of these habits is that we don’t remember how they were formed, and — when it comes to feelings, emotions, and anxiety — we generally just continue to operate with the current habits we have even if the results we get from them are negative.

So, how do we unlearn these old habits that are no longer serving us? In this episode, I explain how we can retrain our brain to create new goals, unlearn habits, and where to begin on this journey. I also explain how different types of memories are formed and how they can become an everyday part of us — whether we want them to or not.
