Podcast Playlist: Transform Your New Year's Resolutions Into Habits

Podcast episodes to help you start the year off right.

This new year, maybe you have dreams of saving just a little more, working out twice a week or expanding your social circle.

We all know how these goals start — the first week of January you go on a run before work, vow to pay off every loan and set up a coffee date with a friend crush. But by the second week of January it feels unsustainable. Who really has time to work out before 8 a.m?

If you want help making changes that stick this year, Life Kit has put together a playlist of some of our favorite episodes to help you turn resolutions into habits.

We'll be adding new episodes to this list throughout January, so follow our Habits > Resolutions Spotify playlist. Happy habit-building!
