We all have bad habits - whether it's a weakness for junk food, a smartphone addiction or a lack of exercise. But change is hard. 40% of dieters quit within a week. 80% of New Year's resolutions don't last beyond January. How can we kick bad habits - and stick with it? According to psychologist and behaviour researcher Dr Sean Young, the answer is to stop trying to change the person, and instead change the process. In 'Stick With It', Dr Young draws on his own research and that of other leading experts to explain how the mind often interferes with breaking bad habits, and how we can outsmart it, increasing the likelihood of lasting change by 300%.
