243 Books in 2017, final picks, closing thoughts

Why You Form Bad Habits (The Science)

Most bad habits are caused by one of two things:  Being stressed or bored. Usually stressed… who has time to be bored?! When my routine is shaken up I feel more out of control which makes me either stress eat or I get to a point where I’m so hungry that I’ll eat a bag of...
