welcome to uprising culture
We understand that movement is a beautiful beginning but to fully enrich our lives we must enrich our minds which is why uprising is excited to use our space to foster mental movement through cultural events.
Each month we'll be meeting on the last Sunday, directly following gentle flow yoga to discuss our latest read as well as get to know our neighbors and share ideas.
We encourage everyone to come to gentle flow beforehand but it is not a requirement.
This is a completely free event, however, proof of vaccination is required for entry.
Masks are optional in the studio once proof of vaccination has been established.
this month we're reading...
How to Change: The Science of Getting from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be
by Katy Milkman
Award-winning Wharton Professor and Choiceology podcast host Katy Milkman has devoted her career to the study of behavior change. In this ground-breaking book, Milkman reveals a proven path that can take you from where you are to where you want to be, with a foreword from psychologist Angela Duckworth, the best-selling author of Grit.
Change comes most readily when you understand what's standing between you and success and tailor your solution to that roadblock. If you want to work out more but find exercise difficult and boring, downloading a goal-setting app probably won't help. But what if, instead, you transformed your workouts so they became a source of pleasure instead of a chore? Turning an uphill battle into a downhill one is the key to success.
Drawing on Milkman's original research and the work of her world-renowned scientific collaborators, How to Change shares strategic methods for identifying and overcoming common barriers to change, such as impulsivity, procrastination, and forgetfulness. Through case studies and engaging stories, you'll learn:
- Why timing can be everything when it comes to making a change
- How to turn temptation and inertia into assets
- That giving advice, even if it's about something you're struggling with, can help you achieve more
Whether you're a manager, coach, or teacher aiming to help others change for the better or are struggling to kick-start change yourself, How to Change offers an invaluable, science-based blueprint for achieving your goals, once and for all.
