Why you should listen

Our brain’s design keeps us doing things in familiar and predictable ways. And yet we all have a deep desire to learn and grow. If something’s not working for you in your life, it takes effort and energy to change it. It takes failing and starting again. So whether you’re seeking more energy, a new goal or more contentment, this episode with Meg breaks down insightful tools you can use today for actionable change. Listen in so you can take a step forward in the right direction for better wellbeing.

Helpful Strategies

  • Consider The 5 C’s of Change – Commitment, Compassion, Courage, Consistency, Community.
  • Start to notice the way resistance shows up for you and whwn you want to stop.
  • Avoid ‘all or nothing’ thinking while making important changes in your life.

You can quote us on that…

 “Our brains are designed to keep us thinking, feeling and acting in familiar and predictable ways.”

Meg Durham

“When we start to feel uncomfortable, we often stop and avoid that discomfort; because we’re getting to the edge of our comfort zone.”

Meg Durham

“A lot of people fall into the trap of ‘all or nothing’ thinking when it comes to their wellbeing.”

Meg Durham

“If change were a song, compassion would be the chorus.”
