Last week I introduced the concept of meal planning. In that episode, I said, Some of you already have a meal planning, practice, which is great. And some of you don't have a meal planning practice. Once you start meal planning, you're going to wonder what took you so long.
But what does it take to build a new habit? At its essence, activism is getting oneself to do things differently, to create new habits. But why do some habits stick and others fail? What are the blocks that stand in the way?
In this episode, I explore these questions with Michele Nevarez, author of the book “Beyond Emotional intelligence: A Guide to Accessing Your Full Potential. She coaches clients around the world on this very topic with her team of Beyond Emotional Intelligence (BEI) certified coaches.
During this interview, Michele, an expert on EI and its practical application, will answer these and other questions and walk us through the proven action steps she designed to help us move from where we are to where we want to be. She offers us simple exercises to take out the “head trash,” so we can turn our hope of a better environment into action.
In the interview, we use food and specifically meal planning as the example, but the exercises she provides can be used for any habit we want to build from eating more sustainably, to meal planning, and beyond.
