Behavioral science shows that most health plans, whether they’re about losing weight, exercising more, or quitting bad habits aren’t designed to last. It’s because they’re based on an incorrect assumption that all you need is willpower and motivation.
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to Dr. Rangan Chatterjee about the science of behavior change and the power of connecting change to an existing habit. We discuss why you can’t rely on motivation alone when it comes to behavior change. We also talk about the importance of human connection when trying to make lifestyle changes, and how a small action in one aspect of your life can very quickly ripple into other areas.
