The Habit Trip
AN ACTIVE JOURNEY TO SELF-DISCOVERY,
ONE MICRO-CHANGE AT A TIME
When something feels wrong, your routines are a mess, and nothing is working, you want to make a change. The impulse is to go big: start a ten-day fast. Work out five times a week. Quit your job, end your marriage, move to Dubai, and start a tourism company. Raze it all to the ground and start over. But those big efforts have a way of fizzling out before they’ve even begun.
THE HABIT TRIP: A Fill-in-the-Blank Journey to a Life on Purpose (Running Press; December 1) maps the topography of who you are and what you love, revealing a straightforward infrastructure for well-being that is hiding in plain sight.
Hop in your Orb, the spinning free-falling sphere of life that will take you everywhere you need to go in THE HABIT TRIP. The journey is divided into three sections:
The Situation: evaluate your life in ten areas to identify what’s working and what’s not
The Solution: find micro-doses of solace and strength to bolster your health and stability
The Payoff: amplify the power, peace, and presence that comes with knowing what matters most
THE HABIT TRIP is an actionable antidote for stress and frustration, nestled inside of an interactive workbook in which you are the one and only expert. By the end of your rollicking journey, you’ll have charted an easier way to roll through the joyful chaos of life, one habit at a time. Your challenges, your solutions, your way.
