New book (to me)

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

I found a new book about setting habits that looks interesting - it arrived today - 'Better Than Before' by Gretchen Rubin. She has a Habit Manifesto:

What we do every day matters more than what we do once in a while

Make it easy to do right and hard to go wrong

By giving something up, we may gain

Things often get harder before they get easier

When we give more to ourselves, we can ask more from ourselves.

We're not ver different from other people, but those differences are very important

It's easier to change our surroundings than ourselves

We can't make people change, but when we change, others may change.

/we should make sure the things we do to feel better don't make us feel worse

We manage what we monitor

Once we're ready to begin, begin now.

I'll keep you updated as I go through this interesting book - It gives great exercises to help change habits.

    I have a copy, now would be a good time for me to go through it again. I found the Abstainer/Moderator section to be helpful. emoticon

    This is the Happiness Project lady, right? I'm skeptical of her, in general, but this looks really good, actually! I'm very interested in habits and habit-setting, so I would be interested in hearing more!
