The neuroscience hack that makes any healthy habit stick (even if your willpower is at zero)

Updated: Mar 28



Ever wonder why some habits never stick, no matter how hard you try?

It's all in the neuroscience, my lovelies.

Our brains are wired to repeat actions that reward us.

They are also wired to go the easiest path…

…the least amount of glucose required…

…which is why new habits are so difficult to start (they require a LOT of effort)…

But here's the catch…

...not all rewards satisfy us long-term.

That's where most fall short in making habits stick.

The game changer?

Implementing a strategy that targets the brain's reward system in a meaningful way.

Here's How:

1) Identify a habit you want to change.

2) Break it down into small, achievable steps.

3) Attach a meaningful reward to each step.

🧠 get into nature

🧠 watch a favorite trash show

🧠 have your upcoming meal

🧠 go to the spa

🧠 spend the rest of the day being lazy

Bonus: If the new habit kinda sucks, make sure you reward yourself 2 hours after completing the habit

Bonus Bonus: Use variable rewards when you reach a milestone (so, don’t give yourself a reward every time). Make it random.

These tactics (and several others) are embedded into the NeuroHabits Program.

A few testimonials:

“30lbs off, 7” off my waist and 5” off my hips.”

“Doing stretching exercises, cardio and 100 squats a day.”

So, next time you're trying to adopt a new habit, remember…

…it's not just about willpower.

It's about understanding how your brain works…

…and using it to your advantage.

We can help you do just that.

DM me "change" and let's make those habits stick, once and for all.

P.S. What kind of rewards do you use? like having my upcoming meal, or going for a hike/paddleboard.
