In this class, I want to teach you how powerful our environment really is. The design of the environment not only impacts our feelings but our actions too. Although we have our willpower to guide us, because using it can make us feel depleted, we often use “automatic” actions, ingrained in us by repetition called habits.
We can design our environments to support great habits or we can design them such that we develop bad habits. It’s very taxing on our willpower to be physically active in an environment that is designed for lying down and sleeping for example.
In this class you will learn:
1. the latest scientifical evidence about the power of environmental design
2. what are habits and how they impact our identity
3. how to design your home so you can have more time and headspace
4. How to design your home so that you can:
a) eat healthily
c) spend more time with loved ones
d) work on things you love
Everything you do / or don’t do overtime adds up to a positive or a negative result.
The people who are most disciplined are not the ones who have the strongest willpower but the ones who set up their environment in a way that they are least tempted. Sticking to your habits does not require self-control but some clever design in advance.
The class is inspired by the book “Atomic Habits” by James Clear.
You can find all the photos I have used in this class in my “Home design for better habits” Pinterest board.
Looking forward to hearing what you thought of it!
