When you hear the word “habits,” how do you feel? A sense of heaviness or obligation… feeling guilty about your “bad” habits… or even feeling ashamed that you haven’t been able to stick to your habits?
If that’s how you feel about habits, you’re not alone. But it doesn’t have to be that way! After Shelley’s takedown of Atomic Habits in the last episode, we thought we’d consider habits through a bit of a softer, more intentional lens in this episode.
So today on Two Booked Up, Rowena is encouraging you to bring some intention to your habits — so that they can be truly supportive of a bigger vision, rather than a whole list of “shoulds.”
She goes through seven core habit areas and encourages you to commit to just one habit that means something to you and aligns with the person you’re becoming.
This is not the first time Rowena has talked about habits, so she’s got plenty of extra resources for you too…
Book mentioned: Viktor Frankl, in Man’s Search for Meaning
