Choose to Change

Summary

Embrace transformation with awareness and compassion Whether it's a bad habit in need of breaking or a strength ripe for cultivation, nearly everyone has some aspect of themselves that they wish they could change. And yet, many of us find actually implementing this kind of transformation so overwhelming that we often give up before we even start. As an acclaimed expert in mind-body science, Dr. Kelly McGonigal understands what it truly takes - mentally, emotionally, and even physically - to make personal changes stick. With Choose to Change: Six Weeks to Take Charge of Your Habits, Goals, and Emotional Patterns, Kelly presents a curriculum for identifying what you want to shift and laying the groundwork for truly lasting transformation. Through a blend of lecture, experiential exercises, guided meditations, and more, Kelly helps you identify your core values, implement small changes gradually, and mindfully engage with new behaviors so they remain beneficial for years to come. In addition, you'll receive homework and self-reflection practices for hands-on enrichment of these insights.
