What Rats Can Teach Us About Making New Year's Resolutions That Stick

In this Ask Dr Love Radio show, Dr. Jamie Turndorf explains why people repeat ineffective behaviors, outlines 8 steps to free oneself from self-defeating patterns, and shows how to make a list of relationship resolutions for the new year.

Every year, millions of people across the globe make New Year's resolutions to improve their career, health, fitness, weight loss or finances. Sadly, their resolutions fail not because they have no discipline but because humans are creatures of habit. Our brains are wired to maintain the status quo.

In addition, humans have the bad habit of repeating behaviors that don't yield the results we want. If we consider the analogy of a rat trapped in a maze, each time the rat hits a dead-end, he backs up and goes another way. Humans keep banging their heads on the wall. If we all patterned ourselves after rats, and systematically backed up and tried a different path, more people would be amazed at the transformation that would occur in their lives.

In this show, Dr. Turndorf focuses on 8 proven steps for setting oneself free of habitual behavior patterns that interfere with the achievement of New Year's resolutions. Anyone looking to lose weight, find love or romance, make more money or find a better job, or achieve any number of goals should listen in. She'll also show how to create a relationship resolution plan that will crank one's love life into gear for the new year.
