Episode 25: Jenny Remington Returns to Talk About Habits
We have our first return guest this week! We love talking to Jenny Remington, and hope she’ll continue to join us frequently (Hey Jenny, will you be a regular contributor, please?).
If you haven’t listened to Jenny’s previous episodes, go check out Episode 8 and Episode 9. The first is all about StrengthsFinder, and the mini-episode was an outtake from our interview that veered into habits territory. And now, finally, we got to have a complete habits-focused conversation for this episode!
We talk about the stark differences in the before times, then Covid life, and now, the after times. A lot of us have jumped right back into our complex, busy lives, but we’ve seen what it’s like to live without the chaos. And we liked it. Transitions are tough, even when almost everyone we know is experiencing a similar transition. Jenny has advice about managing during this time, including maintaining the good habits we’ve built, as well as creating new habits to go with this new post-Covid life.
One of our big takeaways this week is that our habits exist to support our lifestyle. You’ll have to listen for more on that concept, but it’s one of those mind-blowingly simple ideas that can absolutely change your life.
We also talk about pivotal habits, and WHOA, another ah-ha moment occurred for us. Sometimes changing just one thing can, in the end, change everything. There’s so much more in this episode; one amazing idea after another, and we know you’re going to learn a lot. Thanks for listening!
