Do you often try to implement radical life changes only to slip back into comfortable habits? According to health and wellness expert, Kathy Freston, it’s time to change that counterproductive “it’s all or nothing” mentality and try a powerful method that can be an effective way to approach positive change.
Kathy promotes a body/mind/spirit approach to health and happiness that includes a concentration on healthy diet, emotional introspection, spiritual practice, and loving relationships, among other tenets. She cites the proven value of “leaning into” change and the benefits of “progress, not perfection.” Kathy cautions that the way to full consciousness isn’t to give up every poor choice at once. She says, “Lean into it. Don’t try to break a lifetime of bad habits overnight.”
