Change doesn’t come easy.
Even the best intentions to alter the course of our diets and lifestyles can be thwarted by our internal auto-pilots taking the helm and navigating us back to more familiar trajectories.
Seemingly wired for sabotage, the human body (and mind) prefers steady and gradual over sudden and abrupt.
Thus your umpteenth attempt to “start on Monday”, only to find yourself in the throes of a donut binge by Friday afternoon.
Baby steps, my friend.
This week on Underground Wellness Radio, Samantha Gladish, author The Qualitarian Life: A 21-Day Solution to a Lighter, Happier, and Healthier You, outlined a more reality-rooted approach to locking in your health habits while keeping your auto-pilot asleep at the wheel.
