    How to Make and Break Habits With James Clear

    Trained is a podcast exploring the cutting edge of holistic fitness.

    With three solid years on the New York Times bestseller list, James Clear's Atomic Habits has made a habit of success. In this episode, the author and entrepreneur, who has inspired millions of readers to change their health behaviours for the better, joins host Jaclyn Byrer and puts it simply: Who we are reflects our habits. With his helpful metaphors and refreshingly straightforward and sustainable mindset techniques inspired by psychology greats, we can all build habits that make us shine.

    "I think the real reason that habits matter is that your habits are how you embody a particular identity. So every action you take is like a vote for the type of person you wish to become."

    James Clear
    Entrepreneur and best-selling author of Atomic Habits
