Making Habits Stick lunch and learn talk in Japan

Welcome to our “Making Habits Stick” lunch and learn talk in Japan, where we delve into the science and psychology behind habit formation and share practical strategies for building and maintaining healthy habits in the Japanese context. Habits play a significant role in shaping our daily lives and professional success, yet many struggle to make lasting changes. This session aims to empower participants with the knowledge and tools to create positive habits that stick, leading to improved productivity, well-being, and overall satisfaction.

In Japan’s fast-paced and demanding work culture, cultivating habits that support personal and professional growth is essential for success and fulfillment. Whether you’re looking to adopt healthier lifestyle habits, boost productivity, or develop new skills, this lunch and learn talk offers valuable insights and actionable techniques to help you harness the power of habits and transform your life.

Talk Objectives:

  1. Understanding Habit Formation: Gain insight into the science of habit formation and how habits are formed and maintained in the brain. Explore the habit loop model, consisting of cue, routine, and reward, and understand how to leverage this framework to create positive habits.
  2. Identifying Keystone Habits: Learn how to identify keystone habits – small changes that have a ripple effect and lead to the adoption of other positive behaviours. Discover how focusing on keystone habits can catalyse broader personal and professional transformation.
  3. Setting Clear Goals: Understand the importance of setting clear, specific, and achievable goals when forming new habits. Learn how to use the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-bound) criteria to set goals that motivate and guide behaviour change effectively.
  4. Creating Habit Cues: Explore strategies for creating effective cues or triggers that prompt desired habits. Learn how to identify existing cues in your environment and establish new cues that prompt desired behaviours consistently.
  5. Building Habit Routines: Develop routines and rituals around desired habits to facilitate their integration into daily life. Learn how to design simple, repeatable routines that support habit formation and reduce decision fatigue.
  6. Reinforcing Habits with Rewards: Discover the role of rewards in reinforcing habits and maintaining motivation. Explore different types of rewards, including intrinsic and extrinsic rewards, and how to use them effectively to reinforce desired behaviours.
  7. Overcoming Habit Roadblocks: Identify common obstacles and challenges that may impede habit formation, such as procrastination, self-doubt, and environmental triggers. Learn practical strategies for overcoming these roadblocks and staying on track with habit goals.
  8. Tracking Progress and Accountability: Implement systems for tracking progress and holding yourself accountable for habit adherence. Explore different tracking methods, such as habit trackers, journaling, and accountability partners, to monitor your habits and stay motivated.
  9. Practicing Self-Compassion: Cultivate self-compassion and resilience when facing setbacks or challenges in habit formation. Learn how to respond to setbacks with kindness and understanding, rather than self-criticism, and how to bounce back stronger.
  10. Continuing Improvement and Iteration: Embrace a mindset of continuous improvement and iteration in habit formation. Understand that habits are not static and may require adjustment over time. Learn how to adapt and refine your habits to better align with your evolving goals and priorities.
