With how highly they’re touted, you’d think we know everything we need to know about habits and routines; But much of what we’ve heard or read about creating, sustaining and breaking them is pop-psychology, anecdote or trend- not rooted in science. 

On today’s episode, we talk to one of the world’s leading experts on behavior change and habits: Dr. Wendy Wood. We get her take on what it really takes to form lasting ones, what to do when life gets in the way, and how to get rid of bad habits. 

Dr. Wood is the Provost Professor of Psychology and Business at the University of Southern California and author of the book, Good Habits, Bad Habits. She has spent the last 30 years studying the challenges of changing behavior, especially how we form habits and why our habits are so difficult to change.
