The Story Behind the Story

More Than A Few Words

If you’re like me, you’ve started lots of things that you hoped would become habits. You run at them full bore for a little while and then you lose steam.  That start and stop is natural, but it doesn’t have to be. 

In this episode, Wendy Harris shares tips to make your new habits a permanent part of your routine. The first step is to start with one thing.  Making too many changes at once is overwhelming and not sustainable, so start with one new behavior and do it every day.
