We’re Quitters — and Proud of It

You may have missed it, fam, but we recently passed Quitters’ Day, the day about two weeks into January when it’s said that most people quit their resolutions for the new year. So, we figured this was the ideal time to talk about why we’re quitters — and proud of it. We are all about quitting things that aren’t working for us, especially soul-sucking resolutions based on pushing and striving.

In this week’s episode, we explore why and when quitting is a good thing, alternative approaches to self-discipline, and how to tell the difference between resistance and when a goal truly isn’t serving us. Here’s to choosing life-affirming goals over soul-sucking ones. Every. Damn. Day. 🙌
