Learn how to make changes that last in 2020.
Usually, when trying to make a change, we think willpower is the answer.
If we just try harder and be more disciplined, it’ll work this time.
But very often, it doesn’t.
A 2016 study found that 80% of New Year’s Resolutions fail by the second week in February.
Whether we want to give up smoking, start exercising, or commit to a new habit, often we find our best efforts fall to the wayside, and after a few weeks we’re right back where we started.
Worse still, now we feel guilty we’ve ‘failed’ which can make us feel less motivated to try again in the future.
Could it be that most of us are just lazy and irresponsible? Or might it be that we don’t understand how our brains really work and the actual science of changing behaviour? In other words, might our common sense about behaviour change be wrong?
A growing body of research indicates that if we want to make changes that last, willpower is not the answer.
Rather, there are evidence-based approaches now being used every day to help people drop extreme addictions and develop new empowering habits.
So for your New Year’s Resolution this year, what if you tried a different approach? One that was evidence-based and scientifically proven to make changes that last – even in extreme cases?
Might you also get a different result?
On Sunday 26th January 2020, three of the UK’s leading experts on behaviour change will present lectures on:
- Neuroplasticity and Behaviour Change; how past experiences influence your perception, personality and behaviour today, and practical neuroscience-based insights for making the changes you want in your life – Dr Gabija Toleikyte, PhD
- How to Make Changes that Last; the truth about the behavioural, psychological and cultural factors that lead to change, and how you can apply these insights to create lasting changes – Sophie Sabbage
- Placebos and Behaviour Change; the role of unconscious processes in change, and how we can hack the amazing power of placebos for changing behaviour; both on a personal, and societal level – Rory Sutherland
You’ll learn how these unique insights can benefit your own life, but also your ability to help others too.
