What is the Lil' Habit Method?

The Lil' Habit method, created by writer, producer, and certified coach Andrea Engstrom, is a unique approach to building positive habits and creating lasting change in your life. Drawing from the science of habit formation, personality studies, and the art of character development, this method provides a fresh perspective on personal growth.

At the core of the Lil' Habit method is the idea that small, consistent actions have the power to transform your life. By focusing on developing one "lil' habit" at a time, you can build momentum and make progress without feeling overwhelmed. This approach is especially relevant as we navigate the challenges and "new normal" of the post-pandemic world.

The Lil' Habit journey begins with choosing a small habit to focus on - something you've been wanting to do but haven't been able to stick with. The method then guides you through a process of self-discovery and growth with four key principles:

  1. Meet Your Resistance: Identify the inner voice that tries to keep you in your comfort zone, and learn to lovingly acknowledge it without letting it control you.
  2. Be Curious, Not Judgmental: Approach your habit with an open and inquisitive mindset, letting go of self-judgment and embracing the learning process.
  3. Make It Easy: Design your habit to be as "frictionless" as possible, reducing barriers to consistency like time, distance, and effort.
  4. Savor the Yay!: Focus on the positive rewards and feelings of accomplishment that come from engaging with your habit, reinforcing the feedback loop that makes habits stick.

Through engaging worksheets, personality-driven writing exercises, and practical tools like habit trackers, the Lil' Habit method helps you build self-awareness, overcome obstacles, and find more joy in the journey of growth. Whether you want to start exercising, launch a creative project, or simply create more space for self-care, this method meets you where you are and guides you forward one small step at a time.

As Andrea shares from her own experience, the magic of the Lil' Habit method is that it doesn't just help you change your habits - it changes you. By approaching growth with curiosity, self-compassion, and a commitment to small wins, you'll develop a toolkit for transformation that extends far beyond one specific goal. You'll learn to reframe beliefs, face challenges with resilience, and expand your comfort zone, opening up new possibilities in every area of life.

So if you're ready for a fresh start - and a new way to grow - the Lil' Habit method is here to cheer you on. With its unique blend of behavioral science and personality-driven coaching, this approach proves that big changes really do come from small beginnings. All you need to do is start.
