Ep #37: Managing Urges
Any behavior that has you stuck - overeating, overdrinking, overworking, procrastinating, or escaping into Netflix or social media - isn't the problem! When trying to change behavior most people focus on the wrong thing. The focus is always on the plan. So we make one and then grit our way through it. There is a better way. Leading your urges instead of them leading you is critical to learn for long-term change. But most of us were never taught how to manage urges properly. In this episode of The Healthy Leader Podcast, learn how you can USE your urges as a gateway to self-leadership and conquer that bad habit once and for all.
