After Brooke’s recent podcast episode with habits queen Gretchen Rubin turned into a quasi-counselling session, the girls thought it was time they took a good look at habits.
Working through Gretchen’s Four Tendencies for Habit Change, Kelly and Brooke are, not surprisingly, quite different. Kelly is a strong Upholder (meaning she finds new habits easy to adopt once she’s committed) while Brooke leans more towards an Obliger tendency with more than a touch of Rebel (meaning she is far more likely to change a habit or take action if others are relying on her, but only to a point. Once she hits Peak Obliger she’s just as likely to throw her hands up and walk away in a burnt-out mess.)
In this episode, Kelly and Brooke talk about their own habits and what tips and hacks have worked for them when changing or introducing a new one.
