SLF Episode 60: On Habits (Part II)

Another spirited conversation with health and wellness guru Howard Jacobson ( on the subject of habits and positive behaviour change - a continuing theme we are both fond of, in our respective fields. Here, the discussion ranges through:

  • how small, targeted, habit interventions can have powerful, lasting effects

  • setting the scene for focus and 'deep work'

  • why relaxing isn't as easy as it sounds

  • how Systema training highlights our bad habits, and show us the folly of trying to 'out-think' them
