Unlocking the Path to a Well-Designed Life

Dr. Kyra Bobinet’s book, “Well Designed Life: 10 Lessons in Brain Science and Design Thinking for a Mindful, Healthy, and Purposeful Life,” serves as a guide to embracing a well-designed life. During the podcast, she shared simple techniques to help individuals create meaningful changes and design their ideal lives. By drawing on principles of design thinking and neuroscience, Fresh Tri empowers individuals to make positive, lasting transformations in their daily habits and behaviors.

The Power of Experimentation

Dr. Bobinet mentioned that she spends a significant amount of time experimenting on her own behavior. This embodies Fresh Tri’s commitment to continuous improvement and growth. We understand that each individual’s journey is unique, and through experimentation and self-awareness, we can discover what works best for our personal well-being.

Overcoming Fear and Self-Defeating Behavior

Getting ourselves to do the things that are good for us can be challenging. Dr. Bobinet addressed the common obstacles of fear, lack of motivation, and self-defeating behavior. At Fresh Tri, we advocate for fostering a growth mindset and embracing self-compassion as we navigate the path to positive behavior change.

Iterate and Tweak: Breaking the Try and Fail Cycle

Dr. Bobinet highlighted the two types of people when it comes to behavior change: those who iterate and tweak their behaviors when they no longer serve them, and those who find themselves stuck in a try and fail cycle. Fresh Tri encourages individuals to adopt an iterative approach, making small adjustments to behaviors over time to achieve sustainable and positive outcomes.
