Session: How Can Habits Improve your Life
Why are habits so important? How do you build good ones while removing bad ones?
I've learned a lot about building habits in the last 3 years and it all started when I broke my leg.
📅 During my 4-month recovery, if I wanted to be able to walk again, I needed to go all-in: change my habits and show up every day, no excuses.
This showed me the importance of consistency and the big impact of small steps you do every day. It led to more significant results, and I managed to change my lifestyle along the way, which improved my life quality.
During the lockdown, I've lost 25 kgs, quit smoking, built my morning routine, and started Linkedin microblogging.
