An email course on impulse negotiation – A quick review

I’ve followed the blog My Life Experiment for a while, and I recently decided to check out their free 7-day impulse negotiation email course.  I thought they did a good job of it, so I wanted to spread the word.

The goal of the course is to help you stop an unwanted behaviour and learn strategies that you can apply moving forward.

After signing up for the course on the My Life Experiment, for the next seven days you’ll get an email every morning focused on a specific aspect of the process of making a behavioural change.

One of the emails mentions “There is grieving involved in negotiating new outlets for our impulses.”  I thought this was a really interesting way of looking at it.  A suggested tool for dealing with this was therapeutic writing, which I’m all for.  Overall, I thought the course was well done.

I believe this is only the second email course I’ve done, and I think it’s an interesting concept.  It’s something I’ve vaguely considered starting through my blog, although it hasn’t gone as far as coming up with any specific ideas.

Have you done any sort of email course before?  If so, what worked or didn’t work well?

  1. Yes. I began a course on female empowerment when I felt desperately low after a relationship ended. The first few sessions were relaxing and pleasant, but then I lost interest. I need a real life counselor, I think.

  2. I’ve done a few email and online courses for writing. They both worked well for me. The email course was between the instructor and me only, which was nice — I didn’t have to comment on other people’s work 😂 If I did wish to critique others’ stories and interact with other students, I would opt to go online. I wouldn’t do a live online course again though. It’s difficult to type even one word because everybody has something to say too, so it’s like a free-for-all.
