Happy New Year!


We are back with another Monthly Madefor Happenings newsletter, your source for last month’s wrap-up and not-to-miss happenings coming up in January.

💭 A Thought From Our Co-Founder Pat…

Take the pressure off.

Whatever your goals are for 2022, I can promise you that 12 months from now achievement will be less important than progress. Remember this when you fall short or fall off track in a few weeks.

You’re not running towards some distant finish line. You are walking through life, and every day brings a fresh chance to savor and move closer to what matters most to you.

I hope you find joy as you progress through the New Year.

🎉 Learn How to Create Lasting Change to Make 2022 Your Best Year Yet!

During December's Basecamp, our Co-Founder, Pat, spoke with Madefor Lead Scientific Advisor and Neuroscientist, Dr. Andrew Huberman, about change and the fatal mistake many people make when trying to change their behaviors and/or thought patterns.

Here are three tips on how to let go of old habits or ways of thinking that aren’t serving you:

1. Assess and identify the behavior or thought pattern that isn't serving you.

2. Articulate exactly what it is that you want to let go in terms of thought or behavior. Be as precise as possible.

3. Attribute the positive effects you will derive from letting go of that particular behavior or thought pattern.
