New York Times bestselling author Jen Sincero gets to the core of transformation: habits--breaking, making, understanding, and sticking with them like you've never stuck before.
Badass Habits is a eureka-sparking, easy-to-digest look at how our habits make us who we are, from the measly moments that happen in private to the resolutions we loudly broadcast (and, erm, often don't keep) on social media. Habit busting and building goes way beyond becoming a dedicated flosser or never showing up late again--our habits reveal our unmet desires, the gaps in our boundaries, our level of self-awareness, and our unconscious beliefs and fears. Badass Habits features Jen's trademark hilarious voice and offers a much-needed fresh take on the conventional wisdom and science that shape the optimism (or pessimism?) around the age-old topic of habits. The book includes enlightening interviews with people who've successfully strengthened their discipline backbones, new perspective on how to train our brains to become our best selves, and offers a simple, 21 day, step-by-step guide for ditching habits that don't serve us and developing the habits we deem most important. Habits shouldn't be impossible to reset--and with healthy boundaries, knowledge of--and permission to go after--our desires, and an easy to implement plan of action, we can make any new goal a joyful habit.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lifestyle guru Jen Sincero swears by one empowering rule: You already have everything it takes to change your life—you just need to embrace your inner badass. The best-selling motivational author’s fun, fearless philosophy shines through this guide to changing yourself from the ground up through your daily habits. The way Sincero explains it, the path to replacing bad habits with better ones starts with being real about who you are and who you’d like to become. In her approach, it’s not so much about saying you’d like to start a workout plan, but rather training yourself to see yourself as someone who exercises every day; that really has some oomph behind it, and it gives your new habits the power to stick. We found Sincero’s philosophy incredibly intuitive. After all, a goal doesn’t feel temporary when it’s part of who you are. Sincero helps you rewire your brain through a 21-day program—narrating the entire journey like your own personal hype woman. Making changes is always scary, but finding the strength to do it anyway makes you feel like…well, a badass.
