In this three-part lecture series, Dr. Lisle provides a fascinating new perspective on how modern life can turn so many smart, savvy people into the unwitting saboteurs of their own well-being. You will learn how to master the hidden force that undermines health and happiness.
Based upon a recent revolution in motivational psychology, The Pleasure Trap lectures provide you with solutions for the challenges of keeping on a healthful course – and how to make the most of your life.
Three areas that are addressed include:
- How cravings work and how to defeat them
- How to live healthfully while not upsetting others who won’t
- How to make healthy living the “easy” habit of your life
