#321 How to Build Good Habits and Break Bad Ones with James Clear (Re-Release)

Feel Better, Live More with Dr Rangan Chatterjee

Do you believe habits are ‘good’ or ‘bad’? Are you constantly trying to create better habits and quit those that don’t serve you? Today’s guest has insights that will help get your New Year off to a great start by truly understanding what habits are – and how to optimise them.James Clear is an entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author of Atomic Habits a handbook for anyone who wants to finally get to grips with successful behaviour change. He shares his learnings via his hugely popular newsletters, to help people use the psychology of habit formation to live healthier, fuller lives.We talk about ‘designing your environment’, building a tribe around you who support what you want to achieve and finding the path of least resistance to what you want to do. When it comes to good versus bad habits, James says it’s more about which are effective – are they serving you?We also discuss how true behaviour change is really identity change. Every action you take towards your goal is a vote for the person you wish to become. You’re no longer that someone who tries to go for a run three times a week, you’re a runner. James says we can all begin by asking ourselves ‘Who do I want to become?’ then looking at what habits we might need to build that identity.This is such a useful conversation, packed with practical tips, and I think it’s a great way to kick off the year. I know you’re going to feel fired up to seek out your new identity once you listen. Support the podcast and enjoy Ad-Free episodes.

How to Create Atomic Habits for a Better Life with James Clear (Part 2)

The One You Feed

Key Concepts in This Episode: 1. Physical environment plays a huge role in supporting the habit(s) we are trying to create or eliminate.  We can improve our environment by making the habit more obvious and reducing friction (or making it less obvious and increasing friction for those we are trying eliminate). 2.  Social environment is also an important factor in how it affects our behavior when it comes to creating good habits.  By finding a social environment that provides a sense of belonging and friendship, we can increase the attractiveness of habits that leads to more motivation and better outcomes. 3.  The best place to start is making new habits easy and convenient by scaling them down to something very small, such as the "2 minute rule".  The goal is to establish the habit by first showing up and doing the small action consistently.   Once the habit is established, it can then be improved and becomes easier to maintain To learn more about this episode and James Clear, click here! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

100 Charnaie Gordon on "Atomic Habits" by James Clear

Best Book Ever Podcast

It's our 100th episode! Let's celebrate, but in the middle of the celebration, let's have an existential crisis!  It was tough to be happy this week, but I was able to do it because I had something special in my back pocket: an interview with Charnaie Gordon.  Charnaie is a wife, mom, and former Computer Programmer turned full-time Content Creator and Author with both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Computer Science/Information Technology. She’s also a Distinguished Toastmaster and huge literacy advocate/champion. Her blog, Here Wee Read, is where she expresses her creativity and passion for reading, diverse literature, and literacy. She’s also the founder of a children’s literacy organization, 50 States 50 Books, where her family collects and donates diverse children’s books to deserving kids in each of the 50 U.S. states. We also talked about the changes we've made in our life because of the book "Atomic Habits" by James Clear. Bookworms, there was simply no better way to celebrate 100 episodes than to hang out with Charnaie. Make sure you listen to the end of the episode to learn how you can help me celebrate 100 episodes by helping Charnaie out.

Or you can promote her on your social media. On Instagram, post something about her work and  tag @50States50Books and me @bestbookeverpodcast. I’m not on TikTok, Facebook or Twitter, but if you promote her work through those channels, just screenshot it and shoot me an email so I can see it. Everyone who promotes her, whether it’s through money, books, or exposure, and then lets me know about it, will be entered into a drawing, and one randomly chosen winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to their favorite indie bookstore.

The deadline to enter this drawing is June 30, 2022. HOW TO SUPPORT GUN REFORM LEGISLATION IN AMERICA Find your senators here. Find your representatives here. I know it can sound intimidating to call a lawmaker. But your calls MATTER. Call the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121 and ask for the office of your elected official. The person who answers your call will make note of your message and pass it on to the member of Congress. Their addresses are also listed if you would like to send something in writing. This script is easy to follow, though feel free to modify it so you feel comfortable: "Good morning. My name is _ and I live at . I am a constituent and have a deep love for my community and neighbors. I urge Senator/Representative __, as an elected official who represents me, to protect our safety by leading the way toward gun violence prevention. Specifically, I am asking Senator/Rep _____ to advocate for the The Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021 (H.R. Eight) and the Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021 (H.R. 1446). I will be casting my next vote based on his or her legislative response to the gun violence epidemic in America. Thank you for your time." (That part in bold is the really important part. It's time we let our lawmakers know that their response to gun violence will decide their future in politics.) If you’d like to make a cash donation, I like these two organizations, both of which are rated highly on Charity Navigator: Everytown.org Sandy Hook Promise (Note: Some of the above book links are affiliate links, meaning I get a few bucks off your purchase at no extra expense to you.
