Media: Vogue - A question of habit

I was honoured and delighted to be featured in Vogue UK. In this article by the talented Kathleen Baird-Murray, we discuss effective ways to approach new year's resolutions.  

"How we should look at each resolution like a recipe. You can’t make a successful dish if you only have the ingredients – you need the method, too. “Imagine you want to run a marathon for reasons of performance, or for Instagram likes, or whatever it is. In psychology, this is known as an extrinsic goal. The problem is that these goals are sustainable only up to a point – they might get you started on your training, but they won’t keep you engaged.” What will, however, is an intrinsic goal – that is, a deeper reason based on personal significance. This is your WHY, your daily motive for engagement. You run because it makes you feel [insert your reason focus/happy/healthy/capable/strong/sets you up for your day.]

Pinpointing this meaningful motive can be the difference between succeeding and losing interest in a new habit."
