Bouncing Back: Embracing Tiny Habits that Strengthen Resilience
In this PurposeCast, create lasting resilience by connecting with your purpose and embracing simple–yet powerful–tiny habits that fit into your day.
Key to your wellbeing is resilience – the inner strength and ability to bounce back from adversity – often stronger than before. Those who lead resilient lives maintain a set of habits that help them meet life’s challenges, stay focused on what matters most, and enjoy more fulfilling and healthier lives. We often know what changes we seek but, what keeps us from achieving greater resilience and emotional wellbeing in our own lives?
In this PurposeCast, Stanford behavior scientist Dr. BJ Fogg joins purpose expert, Vic Strecher, to tell personal stories and help us get beyond the “what” by connecting the “how” with the “why” of forming new habits. Dr. BJ Fogg has coached and helped thousands of people start tiny and create lasting change that leads to personal transformation.
With a lens on habits that build resilience, they will show us that lasting change does not lie in planning big, monumental changes, but in thinking really, really small and connecting with our purpose on a daily basis.
