2020 Tiny Habits® For Stress Reduction, Meditation and Wellbeing 

It's a myth that it takes 21 days to form a new habit or requires a high level of motivation and self-discipline, among other myths. You can learn a new habit in as little as 5 days. Whether applied to meditation, fitness, stress reduction, work habits, and more, this class builds on mindfulness and amounts to a revolutionary system. We'll draw on the newest and most successful behavior model for habit foundation called the Fogg Method or Tiny Habits®. This evidence-based technique ultimately leads people to a new a way of life, one that supports wellbeing on every level. (Denise Dempsey is a licensed Tiny Habits coach and coaches for the Tiny Habits Academy.)

We will draw on:

  • Evidence-based techniques and principles from the Tiny Habits protocol, a revolutionary behavior model by Stanford behavior scientist BJ Fogg (who's book will come out in Jan.) 

  • Neuroscience related to habit formation and brain health

  • Experiential activities in class and at home

  • Workbookarticles and handouts

Dates and Time: Next class planned for Summer 2020 but there's a chance we'll have another one sooner. Stay tuned.
