We also recommend you to purchase Dr. Dayna Lee-Baggley’s book called “Healthy Habits Suck” as a great evidence-based self-help book.
Salad instead of steak? Working out? Skipping that second beer or glass of wine? Healthy habits are THE WORST.
If you’re someone who gets up every morning and can’t wait for your run, considers eating sweet potatoes a splurge, and sets aside thirty minutes before work to meditate—this book isn’t for you. If you’re someone who thinks about getting up to go for a run but goes back to sleep, regrets last night’s dinner of fast food, and can barely get to work on time—let alone meditate—then this book will help you find the motivation you’ve been looking for to live your healthiest life, even when you don’t want to.
