Here you will find conversations on topics that matter; nutrition, stress, sleep, relationships, movement and my favourite topic, habits.
As a therapist I see a lot of people who are self-critical. Throughout the years I've come to identify two types of self critics. There is no literature that I could find describing the two types, so I simply dubbed these types as overt self-critics and covert...
Realizing that most of my clients have some habits that they are proud of and others that they hate, I became more and more curious over the years. Habit formation/change is a big deal and I was interested in learning about the research that’s been done on it. I...
