Dr. Oz: Healthy Habits
Dr. Oz talked to Gretchen Rubin, author of Better Than Before, about how to ditch bad habits and gain healthy habits.
Gretchen Rubin said that motivation is a very hard thing for a lot of people, because it’s hard for us to decide to do the right thing and stick to that decision. Research shows that 40 percent of what we do every day is a habit. Changing our habits will change our lives.
