Habits: We’ve all got ‘em … and we all wonder why we aren’t better at changing them. This week’s guest has the answer to that question.  Wendy Wood has spent 30 years researching human behavior and is the leading expert on habits and change. Her new book, Good Habits, Bad Habits: The Science of Making Positive Changes That Stick, helps explain how we form habits, what habits really are and why so much of what we’ve believed about changing habits is wrong.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • What is a habit?
  • How long it really takes to change a habit
  • Why creating the right environment is critical to successfully changing habits

If you think that conflict is always bad for your relationship, think again. This episode’s guests are CrisMarie Campbell and Susan Clarke, authors of the book, “The Beauty of Conflict for Couples.” As therapists, they’ve helped hundreds of couples reconcile their differences and get their relationships back on track—but they say it’s not about romance. They teach couples that the things we argue about often have the potential to pave the way to greater intimacy…if we learn how to use it properly.

In this podcast, you’ll learn:

  • Why conflict can be the secret ingredient to reaching relationship goals.
  • How to use the 5/5/5 Rule of Fighting.
  • Why the small conflicts, not the big blowups, are relationship-killers.
