new research from the University of California shows that a “kitchen sink” approach — taking on a group of new habits — is more effective than a minimalist one-habit-at-a-time approach.In the study, college students went through a “multifaceted intervention.” They stretched and meditated in the morning and learned gratitude practices and stress management in the afternoon, followed with pilates, yoga, and body-weight training.
