Better Than Before

“How to Get Up and Get Dressed,” but it works… Once I came to understand habits as harnessing our own laziness—making a habit frees you from decision-making, which you can use to your advantage—my relationship to them changed permanently (New Yorker)

I strongly recommend it if you are looking to make some permanent changes in your life… It’s excellent (Viv Groskop)

HABITS ARE THE INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURE OF EVERYDAY LIFE.

Most of us have a habit we’d like to change, and there’s no shortage of expert advice.

But as we all know from tough experience, there is no magic ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution for everything from weight loss to personal organization

In Better Than Before,

Gretchen Rubin{ the author of Better Than Before} explores her theory of ‘The Four Tendencies’ dividing people into four basic groups:

  1. Upholder,
  2. Obliger,
  3. Questioner and
  4. Rebel.

She answers the most perplexing questions about habits with her signature mix of rigorous research and engaging storytelling (and a personality quiz to establish which of the Four Tendencies fits you):

 


— Why do we find it tough to create a habit for something we love to do?
— How can we keep our healthy habits when we’re surrounded by temptations?
— How can we help someone else change a habit?


 

Rubin reveals the true secret to habit change:


First, we must know ourselves. When we shape our habits to suit ourselves, we can find success-even if we’ve failed before.

Whether you want to eat more healthfully, stop checking your phone, or finish a project, the invaluable ideas in Better Than Before will start you working on your own habits—even before you’ve finished the book.
