Natalie Houston talks about strength through habits.
Guest: Natalie Houston
Productivity Coach, www.nmhouston.com
Habits save us tremendous time and energy, but they can also lead us to doing a lot of things mindlessly.
Sometimes we have goals or intentions that are outdated, they’re from who we used to be.
Habits often work really well when they’re connected to each other.
If you successfully create one habit, it’ll be easier to create others.
All of us have habits that we’re less than happy with and they’re there because they’re meeting some need.
