The Definition of LEARN:

  • To gain knowledge or understanding
  • To come to be able; to come to realize
  • To become informed; to gain by experience


Read September article by Renee Moorefield, member of the GWI Advisory Board and CEO of Wisdom Works Group, and learn how to use PREPARE as a springboard to inspire your participation in the powerful global movement: The Wellness Moonshot: A World Free of Preventable Disease.

Here are a few tips excerpted from the article:

Understand the neuroscience of habits: Neuroscientist Dr. Sarah McKay shares that all habits have a few defining features: Habits are forged over time as a behavior is repeated over and over; they are triggered by a particular cue; and they are performed automatically, often with little conscious awareness. And once formed, they are difficult to break. 

Help others tap into their potential to learn. People often feel stuck because they forget they are hard-wired to adapt and evolve. Assist them in using the same cue-craving-response-reward feedback loop that’s the backbone of every habit to break the habit cycle.

Turn a wellbeing experiment into a habit. Research shows that simple, intentional, positive activities, such as a daily dose of gratitude or wonder, will increase your wellbeing. Choose an action you’ve experimented with that supports your wellbeing. Then ask yourself, how can I incorporate this experiment into my lifestyle?

Make wellness the core of your identity. Learning can be a pathway to wellness, to be sure, but it isn’t just about adopting a new behavior or mindset. Ultimately, it’s about creating who you want to be. Too many leaders still see wellness as an afterthought rather than the core of how they live and lead.
