246: The Power Of Habits with Gina Cleo

May 22, 2024

You know some conversations you have and you just love? I got off this conversation with Dr Gina Cleo with a big smile on my face. What a wonderful, smart, beautiful human!

In this episode I ask Gina about how we create habits that last. Whether our success in having the habits we want comes from will power, motivation, or something else.

We talk about the difference between the reflexive and reflective part of the brain.

I am sharing my experiment with being my best self and why it failed.

Gina kindly shared one of the worst moments of her life and how she managed to harness all of the knowledge she’d gained about good habits to rebuild her life and come through to the other side stronger and happier.

When she’s not geeking out on new habit research, Gina is running courses
through her Habit Change Institute and obsessing over chai lattes. She has also
recently published a book, ‘The Habit Revolution’.

It’s a good one!
