The central topic of her book ‘Oude gewoonten, goede voornemens’ on which the lecture is based is: Having good intentions is easy, but how do you realize them? Everybody has dreams, annoyances and secret wishes she (or he) finally wants to work on. In her book Linda describes the 4-step-approach how to successfully realize your dreams and wishes. In her lecture she will give you tools and inspirations to make your dreams reality by a technique based on a positive approach and concrete actions.

Summary Interactive Lecture ‘Old habits, good intentions’

A lot of people have good intentions at the start of a new year. They would like less stress and more career development at the workplace. In their private life a lot of people want to lose weight and exercise more. Although throughout the year a lot of people have wishes, dreams and annoyances, it is very difficult to maintain new habits. It all comes down to behavioural change and the struggle with old habits. Old habits are routines, automated behaviour, which is hard to change. That is why a lot of good intentions fail to become reality. Although it can be hard, it is definitely not impossible to change. A good preparation and the willingness to change are important success factors. In the interactive lecture Linda van der Wal will present practical tips and backgrounds based on scientific research so your good intentions will become a success.
