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 ourselves from the ground up through our daily habits. The way Sincero explains it, the path to replacing bad habits with better ones starts with being real about who we are and who we’d like to become. In her approach, it’s not so much about saying we’d like to start a workout plan, but rather training ourselves to see ourselves as people who exercise every day; that really has some oomph behind it, and it gives our 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 we are. Sincero acts as our own personal hype woman as she leads us through her 21-day program. Making changes is always scary, but finding the strength to do it anyway made us feel like…well, a badass.
Bestseller Sincero (You Are a Badass Every Day) brings a joyously bold attitude to this 21-day plan to form and maintain good habits. Flipping the process of habit creation on its head, Sincero first focuses on successful habits readers already have, arguing it's easier to change when one can see evidence of the benefits of doing so. (Sincero writes that her own push for change was built on a foundation of politeness, punctuality, and tidiness which came naturally to her.) The primary advice here is to develop a 21-day structure based on mantras (such as "I can have both money and love, I am free to make money"), routines (such as establishing a morning meditation) that bolster better habits, activities (such as finding a support group or trainer), and rewards (such as cheat days in healthy eating routines). Though Sincero occasionally tilts too far into the realm of positive thinking "You're privy to the magic trick of manifesting what you desire through focus and taking right action" she provides plenty of practical suggestions (appreciate one's body without shame in a mirror, make oneself a treat at the start of difficult tasks) and maxims to live by: "You are responsible to other people, you are not responsible for other people." Sincero's fans will love this.
