The Little Book of Big Change: The No-Willpower Approach to Breaking Any Habit

The Little Book of Big Change: The No-Willpower Approach to Breaking Any Habit

by Amy Johnson

The title can seem too good to be true, but believe it or not, this book looks at change from a scientific viewpoint. The overall philosophy that Amy Johnson PhD, prominent life coach and author of other self-help books, offers is that we are the way we are, and that, more importantly, we are not our bad habits. Instead, Dr. Johnson outlines ways to use psychological science and spiritual practices like meditation to help achieve change in your habits and overall lifestyle. She write about how knowing the "why" behind habits can help you move beyond the bad ones. Instead of taking your unhealthy habits personally, Dr. Johnson provides methods to take a step back and not to get defeated.
