On Making Self-Care Stick, I break down the psychology of habit formation for healthier, happier habits.  This week we're talking about reinforcement! Reinforcement is anything that you add that increases the likelihood that you'll do a behavior.  It can be positive (like adding in a reward) or negative (like an alarm you want to turn off).  I'll break down the pros and cons of each style in this week's episode!
