Must. Read. Stop what you’re doing and go buy this book right now. Seriously, go read it right now. This book changed my life in how eye-opening it was for me. I used to be a compulsive nail-biter. Basically as early as I can remember I was biting my nails and my mom was trying to get me to stop. Then in 2013 I had surgery and overnight I stopped biting my nails. I never understood how, but just like that it was over.

Living in a new place, it’s been really hard for me to get into a new workout habit. In Baltimore, I moved in and got into a workout routine right away, but here getting anything has been like pulling teeth. TPH opened my eyes- and while it’s still up to me to make the decisions that lead to a change in my routine, I feel empowered having learned more about the science behind habits. I’m mailing this one to my friend Rana! I know she’s going to love it!

My favorite quote: “Not sharing an opportunity to learn is a cardinal sin.”
