Habits: Making Good & Breaking Bad, Episode #46, 01-14-2020

We all have habits whether we recognize them or not -- some good, some bad. Making your bed in the morning is a good habit and looking at your cell phone in the middle of an important conversation is a bad habit. 

This episode discusses some of the good and bad habits that we see most often in our experience and what the research says about making good and breaking bad habits. So if you’d like to work on your habits, you’ll enjoy this show!
