How can we change our habits for greater happiness?

Habits are the foundation for wellbeing, but changing our habits can be hard!

What if you could turn your desired habit into a source of pleasure, instead of a chore?

At this special event, author and change expert Professor Katy Milkman will reveal a proven path that can take you from where you are to where you want to be.

Katy will share how change happens when you understand what’s standing between you and success. You can then turn your uphill battle into a downhill success story!

Her research can help you find ways to overcome common barriers to change, such as impulsivity, procrastination and forgetfulness. She'll also explain why timing is important when it comes to making changes and how to turn temptation and inertia into assets.

This event is the perfect way to get 2024 off to a happier start. So join us and get an invaluable, science-based blueprint for achieving your goals, once and for all.
