Happy holidays podcast fans. Is anyone else starting to feel the hustle and bustle picking up a few notches with Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years’ fast-approaching? The next few weeks often seem to be the busiest few weeks of the year. It’s also when our good HABITS and best practices seem to get forgotten. And our worst practices reel their ugly head. Can I get an “Amen?”

Today, I address a couple of questions in regards to habits and what we can do to dial them in right now.  We even dive into some of my best habits, worst habits, and how these habits set the stage for success and performance. From eating better to avoiding negative thoughts– check out how you can create greatness EVERY DAY through a few small changes. 

Enjoy this time of year and don’t let your HABITS deter you from looking, feeling, or being your BEST.

Question from Ali Lamb:

“Hey Todd! I love listening to your podcast and getting the positive boost to my mornings! My question has to do with mindset. I am naturally a follower just in everyday life, which is a problem when it comes to my health. I love to stay active and eat well but when I’m around friends and family who don’t feel the same, I’m sucked into eating poorly or overspending or having negative thoughts. How do I keep focused and not let other people influence me for the negative, even in circumstances that I physically cannot remove myself from them? Thanks for your impact, Todd!!”
