• In this articlepublished in the Great Course Daily, we can read an extract from the lecture series: "Outsmart Yourself: Brain-Based Strategies to a Better You", taught by Professor Peter M. Vishton, Ph.D., where he explains the hugely importance of habits and how we could use some tools of cognitive neuroscience to help us break the bad ones. Something to be considered when confronting a behavioral change, and maybe some explanation why we do what we do.

  • James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, a very powerful book that I highly recommend, shells what behavioural science can teach us about habits, decision making, and continuous improvement. In one of his popular articles, he writes about the The Four Burners Theory, a way of thinking about work-life balance that stemmed from a David Sedaris' article in the New Yorker.
