Description

You already know what you need to do.

  • You need to pray every morning, but you forget.
  • You need to drink water and move, but coffee and couch crashing is easier.
  • You need to create and learn, but there’s no time.
  • You need to show your kids love and affection, even in the midst of the hustle and bustle that frazzles and frustrates.

Ugh. Can we give up now? Or maybe this new year we’ll wake up and be different?

Plant and water the habits that will build you up, not tear you down.

We all have habits that hinder us rather than help us.

Whether it’s eating chocolate when we’re stressed or staring at our phone to procrastinate or tune out of the present, intense moment, we have ways of coping that are unhealthy.

Worse yet, we think of those bad habits as survival strategies and turn to them to give ourselves a break, only to find ourselves feeling worse instead of better.

If you find yourself

  • starting the day groggy
  • ending the day discouraged
  • needing to recharge and not knowing how
  • zoning out on your phone as a “break”
  • beginning a new eating plan instead of sticking to anything
  • unmotivated to exercise, eat right, or read

then you need accountability and baby steps, not new plans or new knowledge.

All of these issues come down to bad habits that need breaking and new habits that need building.

Motivation is strong with the new year, but how long does motivation last? It rarely lasts through the whole day – sometimes not even through the morning.

Willpower is a limited resource, and every time we start anything – breakfast, school – even a shower! – takes a bite out of our willpower reserves.

Yet, there’s a way to beat these limitations: Habit.

Don't give up on growth. Start with seeds, not transplants. Build the habits of discipline that will bear fruit over the long haul - join others doing the same.

Want to start the school year with solid habits?

Our tendency is to want to start whole-hog with a brand new lifestyle on Monday morning. Successful habits – and therefore lifestyles – are not built that way. They are built one step at a time, with small win building upon small win.

No more crash-and-burn.

Humble Habits – a six-week live class with accountability – is for moms who want to build incremental, long-lasting growth.

For moms who are tired of faulty habit plans, of too-high expectations, and of continued failure – Humble Habits will turn the tables and make your habit plan work for you at last.

Instead of starting with a lofty, life-changing plan, together we’ll take mini, modest steps that are manageable and that will teach us how to make lasting, lifelong change.

I’m Mystie Winckler, author of my signature, life-changing course Simplified Organization: Learning to Love What Must Be Done and this new 6-week accountability program, Humble Habits. I homeschool my five kids, keep many project plates spinning, and love the fact that my husband works from home.

For years I have fallen into the trap of thinking all I needed was the right plan, the right resolve, the right motivation to turn over a new leaf, jump on the best bandwagon, and finally be who I wanted to be. I’d make the list, set myself up for success, have a good day, and then utterly fail the next day.

Reading habit experts like Charles Duhigg, James Clear, and B.J. Fogg, as well as Gretchen Rubin, Chip & Dan Heath, and numerous others, helped me see why my plans kept failing: they were always too big, too unrealistic, or too vague – or all three!

After experimenting with different pieces of advice and patterns of implementation from these sources and others, I’ve brought their insights into the homeschooling, homemaking mom-world — which is worlds apart from that of business advice, motivational speakers, and fitness experts.

Moms might have different priorities and different lingo, but we have just as much need for strong habits of personal growth because our actions are the loudest, most effective teaching moments we give our kids.

Humble Habits is a 6-week live course delivered by email, helping you build the habits you need for health, happiness, and a humming home. Sound grandiose and unrealistic? That’s because we’re too used to jumping to big change, when it’s the little things, done consistently, that give us the biggest payoff. It’s the linchpin habits that make further growth and change possible.

To go far, start with the small wins. Be the tortoise, not the hare.

I’m so grateful for this course- it set the path of consistency in personal exercise & now I’m running regularly! Simple, easy steps helped me build habits that I could expand on later!

Heather T.

The fruit from those little habits were a godsend for this time in my life. God used your insights to change my life and my family’s life for the better.

Janet

Not only is my trigger working, but now I remember to pray even when I don’t see the trigger! Thank you so much- this is just what I needed!

Lindsey

Even on cold meds, I’m keeping my habit! ?

Humble Habits will guide you through building 5 key habits:

  • prayer to feed your soul
  • movement to fuel your body
  • reading to fill your mind
  • self-talk to focus your attitude
  • smiling to fortify your relationships

Each of these habits start with a small seed, planted and watered before growth and fruit can be expected.

Humble Habits will help you start small with a weekly checklist that outlines

  • the baby step – habit seed – to take first
  • the brain dump to uncover your resistance and motivation
  • the personal plan forward after the baby step habit seed has been planted

But more than this checklist or the twice-weekly motivational emails, Humble Habits will help you overcome resistance and stagnation through accountability and smart, small habit-seeds.

  • daily motivation texts (or emails)
  • check-ins (by text or email)
  • weekly troubleshooting chats

text, audio, & video

get the material in the form you like best, with email, worksheets, essays, audio, and live chats

thought-provoking

no surface solutions or quick fixes here - you get meaty, workable answers that fit real life at home with kids

get the support you need

stop trying to go it alone and get the backup and step-by-step help you need




For less than the price of a coffee each week, Humble Habits will help you break through your barriers by showing you how to start smaller, not bigger. And I promise a better productivity high after a week of this program than the caffeine will give you. If not, I'll give you your money back (something you can't get if the coffee doesn't kick you into gear).

We all want the shortcut, the massive overhaul that just happens like the flip of a switch, but that's not how habits work and that's not how growth - of any kind - happens. Our pride makes us bite off more than we can chew, but it then gives us a stomach ache.

Start humbly, with the habit hacks that research has proven, freshly applied specifically and pointedly to life at home with kids.

The live class will run September 7 - October 19, 2018, and the enrollment deadline is September 8.

My promise: If you don't see traction and growth in your own life (as defined by you, not me!) by the end of the six-week program, let me know and I will refund the entire cost of the class.

Don't give up on personal growth.

Habits aren't impossible; they're just hard. However, they're worth the time and effort - not only for our kids, but even for ourselves.

Start smaller to see success. Enroll in Humble Habits with likeminded women and build the baby steps that lead to self-control, stress-management, and relationship-building.

Humble Habits is a live accountability program, not a lifetime-access course. However, because I know life never stops for moms and we can't control our time and other priorities often must win out, all participants will receive full access to the program materials for a full 3 months after the program has finished.
You'll have complete access to the worksheets, email content accessible on the site, workshop replays, and forum discussion for 3 months after the program is over: until December 19, 2018. That's plenty of time to catch up, continue practicing, and print off reminders and extra worksheets.

    Humble Habits is like “Improve Your Life for Dumbies.” So simple and yet so very effective – it’s hard not to take away at least one permanent, life-changing habit.

    I am thankful to God for His lovingkindness and patience as I have struggled with good habits and discipline. This Humble Habits course has been one of the means He has used to grow greater faithfulness in my life. This course has helped me cultivate my relationship with the Lord and my relationship with others. It hasn’t happened overnight, but seeds have been sown and are now being watered! Thank you, Mystie for your humble comraderie and encouragement! God has used you to bless me and in turn the other people in my life, including the stranger (the smile habit ?) at the grocery store. This course can be a blessing to anyone willing! Join us!

    I greatly appreciated the Humble Habits study! It set in motion some steps toward habits I want to achieve and a slow and steady process to get there.
    Consistency is certainly key and I definitely needed the accountability and encouragement to work on these small steps to building those habits. I’m still working on them and hope to continue and build more as the years go on!
    I’m looking forward to starting some more small steps with my kids, so that they can hopefully create some habits of their own as well. Thanks for the inspiration and encouragement to press toward the goal and not only for myself, but for my family as well!

    My eyes are opened to process and my new perspective feels hopeful instead of heavy. I got to a place that having a new idea felt discouraging and heavy because I knew I wouldn’t follow through. The problem wasn’t me, it was wrong thinking. So grateful for the freedom this course has blessed me with.

    I am grateful for Humble Habits because it helped me establish a badly needed sleep routine I seemed incapable of making for myself before. The simple approach to habits helps you not get overwhelmed and quit. I especially appreciated the live video accountability once a week.

    This was the best use of my time last January and February. The habits have stuck for the most part, though they look different now. More importantly, we were encouraged to not despise small beginnings—I do need to start at this minuscule level that will make no appreciable difference for quite awhile because I actually am not better than that. I am a frail human in need of a mighty God, and this course was a good reminder of that reality.

    Humble Habits changed my life for the better. It has been 8 months since I first went through the program, and I smile more now than before. It has changed the atmosphere in our home.

    Mystie is wonderful! Her classes are wonderful and have helped transform my life into being a little bit more organized every time :) Humble Habit takes you back to the basics that are easy to forget when life gets crazy! We all need reminders to put self discipline back into action for the good of ourselves and those around us! Grateful for this class and many of her others!

    I loved this ecourse, because I felt like it was designed for me- helping me grow and cultivate the habits I’ve always dreamed of. I know I’m not alone. ? “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape…” If you feel like you’re the only one trying to wrestle your inner-two-year-old into submission, you’re not. If you feel hopeless, this course may be God’s “way of escape” for you, dear sister; it was for me. ?

    Humble Habits resulted in lasting change for me. Mystie helped me understand how habits are formed. I had no idea that cues and rewards were so important, but they really work! And it’s not “extra work on top of all the stuff.” Humble Habits helped me work into my everyday routines things for which I’d been longing: more prayer, more reading, moving more. And the mindset change was so helpful for me (an all-or-nothing kind of personality). Example: Instead of thinking, “Well! I don’t have an hour or two of uninterrupted time to read (and that book seems too hard anyway, if I’m being honest), so I’m just not going to do it!”, Mystie taught me to set a doable goal: 3 minutes of reading. I can read anything for 3 minutes (hard or not), and I can find 3 minutes of quiet! Lo and behold, I’ve worked through several books that had hitherto sat on the shelf. I’m thankful to the Lord for Mystie’s teaching and leading. It’s made a difference for me.

    What I loved about this course (and Mystie herself) is the authenticity, the realistic steps, the brain exercise, and the time, thought and research behind the plan and recommendations. If you are continually beating yourself up, come here for encouragement and a place to begin anew. It’s like commiserating with a friend, but one who’s not content to leave you where you are. It’s also great to be reminded you are not alone on these journeys! Loved the live classes!
