Hello and welcome to episode 193 of The Mindful Kind podcast!

In this episode, I've shared some interesting research and helpful information about habit formation from an awesome book I found on Blinkist called The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg.

You'll learn about chunking, which is an automatic process that helps your brain save energy and forms the basis of habit formation.

You'll also hear about the three-part loop which makes up a habit, including a cue, a routine and a reward.

I've shared some of my own experiences with habits and how understanding habits has helped me change unhelpful habits and stick with positive habits!
