The Roots of Health – Habits and Motivation with Coach Stevo

100% of my clients can tell me 3 things that they could do to improve their health. I hear things like ‘I need to exercise more’ or ‘I need to eat less sugar’ or ‘I need to get more sleep’ or ‘I don’t drink enough water’… But apparently it’s one thing for yourself to KNOW, and another thing entirely for yourself to actually DO. If we could somehow crack the code on this disconnect, we might all be making progress toward our health goals.

My guest today is poised to help. Steven M. Ledbetter, aka “Coach Stevo” has BA in Philosophy from the University of Chicago, an MA in Sport Psychology and is the CEO of Habitry, Co. – A community for coaches who want better for their clients.

The topic of habits and motivation is important for anyone seeking to change their health – particularly as I am busy throwing all sorts of ideas at you aimed to inspire you shift your perspective and make some changes in your life. In this show – we discuss ideas about how to actually start making those changes.

Coach Stevo and I chat about why we can’t seem to do what we know that we need to do, what a habit actually is, what percentage of your day is composed of habitual actions, how best to recognize & shift your habits (hint: maybe you need a community), the value of incremental change, how to construct a ‘habit statement’ – with an example of the habit to eat less sugar, and about the importance of process goals rather than focusing on the desired outcome.
