Habits for Happiness
Friday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
I strongly believe that the path to Happiness is paved with Healthy Habits, and that we are always “In Choice” and have agency over our wellbeing and happiness. This idea is contrary to what most of us are taught. Most of us grow up believeing that the shiny object is out there in the external world and thus, we spend our whole lives reaching for it. The irony is that all along what we are searching for is right there inside of us. In short, we are homesick for ourselves.
How do we access that place inside? Through Habit Change. I want to offer you free, easy, and simple steps to take control of your life, mood and well-being during this immense time of transition. Habits for Happiness is broadcast live every Friday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
“As a trained master Life and Habit Coach, I am one of the only people in my field who touts daily habits as the best path to happiness. I often resonate with people who are logical thinkers, and even skeptical about the idea of happiness. My intention is to let listeners know that our ability to find happiness is inside of us and only we have agency to expand it.”
