I wanted to record an episode of the podcast that specifically addressed why you might get the impression from my social media that I'm completely against New Years Resolutions.
I'm actually not....if they are done properly. The problem is, they almost never are.
Fler avsnitt från "The Habits Habit"
Dr Ben Gardner - THE man on habits
59:27It is impossible to read any book or paper on habits that has done any level of research without coming across the name "Gardner", quite often in the context of "Gardner, Lally et al". Dr Gardner is one of the leading researchers in the science of habit formation and a leading lecturer on the topic. His research output is immense, but his latest paper is the one that raises the most questions in my view. I'm delighted Ben agreed to be on the podcast, please enjoy!

Martin Grunburg - The Habit Factor
1:04:32Martin Grunburg was talking about habits way before most of the rest of the world woke up to how important they were. Like a decade before Atomic Habits, Tiny Habits or any of the other best sellers from today. And his view on Habits is quite interesting, and something the science seems to be catching up with. Take a listen.

Rob Cullen on Weight Loss Habits
1:12:49This week's guest is Rob Cullen. Rob and his wife Yvonne lost 13 stone between them, which, obviously, is a huge amount of weight. Importantly, they didn't do it using any mad diet or exercise regime, and just as importantly, because of that the weight has stayed off. For anyone thinking of losing weight, you would be hard pressed to listen to a more important or inspiring interview today.
New Years Resolutions - Why 81% of them fail
35:16I wanted to record an episode of the podcast that specifically addressed why you might get the impression from my social media that I'm completely against New Years Resolutions. I'm actually not....if they are done properly. The problem is, they almost never are.

Hydration Habits - The Habits of Hydration with Dr Esther Papies & Amy Rodger
1:02:33My guests this week are talking about something that sounds easy, but actually isn't. Drinking water. Or more specifically, drinking enough water to stay hydrated all (or nearly all) of the time. Dr Esther Papies and research assistant Amy Rodger undertook a study earlier this year to find out how and why people drink water, and to see how if could be habitualised and looked at in a different way. The results are fascinating, and after listening to the podcast you'll never think about drinking water in the same way again. Please leave a review or comment if you can (and want to!) Brian
