What is the nature of your interest in designing experiences for personal habit development?

No answer yet

Can you share a 5-minute personal story about a successful habit practice that's lasted longer than 100 days? If so, please give us just a quick synopsis!

Just by having a timer in front of me when I'm at my desk, I have been able to reliably take a 2-minute break every 25 minutes. This allows me to stand up, recollect my focus and presence, stretch my shoulders and neck, relax briefly, and then carry on working optimally.

Which (if any) relevant guest speaker(s) could you contact to speak at a future meetup with whom you already have a personal relationship?

Prof. Jennifer Daubenmier of UCSF, who specializes on mindfulness.

Which specific host locations (if any) could you contact to host/sponsor a future meetup?
