Publisher's Summary

How can we change our behaviours? The first step is understanding our habits. For better or worse, habits are the invisible building blocks of daily life. Research suggests that about 40% of what we do is repeated almost daily and yet most of the time we aren’t really aware of what’s happening.

In this series, neuroscientist Ash Ranpura and comedian Alice Fraser deep dive into the science of behaviour change. They want to find out how we can make good habits and how we can break bad ones. Along the way they meet the man who invented the science of habits, talk to a woman trying to change the world through figuring out how to make behaviour change stick and try out some of the latest tricks and techniques designed to help you change your own behaviours.

This is the one series you should have in your headphones if you want to understand how to make positive changes in your life.

Very useful for developing new habits or altering small irritating habits

Fun, simple, and lots of easily applied tips to developing/breaking simple everyday habits!

Re: addictions: Tips can be helpful for one who is coming out of addiction but likely only as an extra reminder for one who is already participating in a rehab program.

Excellent starting point and a great read

Even if you've never read psychology based books, this is a very easy listen and a great starting point to changing your habits.
It covers a great deal of practical things we can do to change our habits, and exhibits a vast variety of science backed studies that have had different effects on people so you can try different methods that might work for you.
An easy and great listen.
Highly recommended!

Engaging

I've read The Power of Habit and Atomic Habit. Listening to this series is a great way to review and summarize the learning from these books.
