This provocative presentation will showcase the science for a new paradigm that better fosters sustainable behavior change. Learn why traditional reasons for changing our behavior (e.g., better heath, disease prevention, etc.) keep us stuck in cycles of starting and stopping rather than behavioral sustainability.
