You might be thinking, "I already know those things…I just can't get myself to do them!" That's where our course is different. It's based on the work of Dr. BJ Fogg, the head of Stanford's Behavior Design Lab. In fact, this course was co-created with Dr. Fogg, and many of the videos feature Dr. Fogg himself.
In his book "Tiny Habits: The Small Changes That Change Everything," Dr. Fogg describes "the information-action fallacy"...the false idea that if we just learn WHAT to do, we can change our lives.
But we know that knowledge alone is not enough. After all, how many of us have heard that we should eat healthier, exercise more, or get better sleep, but we can't follow through?
If you've tried unsuccessfully to change your behaviour in the past, you probably felt frustrated. You might have even felt like a failure. But if you're trying to change your behaviour with outdated methods that don't work in the real world, you are not the problem.
You're just using the wrong tools. And we're here to give you the tools that work so you can experience the success that you are truly capable of.
The Tiny Habits Method is a research-proven system for implementing new habits into your life simply and easily, without relying on motivation or willpower.
It's been tested for over a decade, and it's proven effective for over 100,000 people – many of whom we've coached ourselves!
This course will teach you how to identify the habits that will have the greatest impact on your life. It will also teach how to plant them into existing daily routines so they quickly become a natural part of your day.
We'll also bust some common habit myths as we teach you the most cutting-edge strategies for hacking your own behaviour.
The Tiny Habits Method can be applied to any goal you're pursuing, from brain health to business building to improving your relationships. With Tiny Habits for Brain Health, you're really getting two courses in one: an expert guide to brain health and a masterclass on habit formation from one of the world's most respected researchers.
This course is not just about learning to improve your brain health. It's about giving you the tools to make it possible – and even easy.
Do you want to keep your brain sharp no matter what your age? Would you like to feel more focused and productive? Did you know that keeping your brain healthy can impact your mood as well as your mind? Whether you are getting older, have a family history of dementia, or just have a brain and want to keep it healthy (that's all of us!), this course will show you how.

"We always try to improve ourselves on a daily basis with regard to routine habits, finance, health, and food. I have tried to write down and then track tasks. There are so many that I get overwhelmed and lose a few tasks and I am unable to make any progress."
"This led to frustration despite having the right intentions and effort. The Tiny Habits course created by Dr. Shabnam, Dr.Fogg, Jennifer and Stephanie helped me to break this down. It helped me to understand how to make a habit and how to be more effective at creating change in my life. The course is well structured with learning outcomes and feedback. It is a course to take up and go deeper into this interesting science of creating habits"
Dr. Sachin Ganorkar, Apollo Hospitals, India.

"Making consistent changes has always been challenging and now feels possible."
