In this class, I want to teach you how powerful our environment really is. The design of the environment not only impacts our feelings but our actions too.
Although we have our willpower to guide us, because using it can make us feel depleted, we often use “automatic” actions, ingrained in us by repetition, called “habits”.
1. the latest scientifical evidence about the power of environmental design
2. what are habits and how they impact our identity
3. how to design your home so you can have more time and headspace
4. How to design your home so that you can: eat healthily, exercise, spend more time with loved ones, work on things you love and recycle.
We can design our environment to support great habits or we can design them such that we develop bad habits. The people who are most disciplined are not the ones who have the strongest willpower but the ones who set up their environment in a way that they are least tempted.
Sticking to your habits does not require self-control but some clever design in advance.
