Why do we develop our habits? And why are they so difficult to change?
Imagine you could take habits that cause you stress or harm—like procrastinating, smoking, overeating, binge watching, social media addiction, negative thinking, and more—and replace them with habits that support your well-being and health.
Hugh Byrne, author of The Here-and-Now Habit, brings together the ancient wisdom teachings of mindfuless and compassion with cutting-edge insights from neuroscience to offer powerful tools that help you live with greater joy, ease, and freedom.
Through storytelling, discussion, interactive practices, and meditations healthcare providers will be able to teacher their clients to:
- Describe the patterns that support habits and how mindfulness supports change
- Utilize the power of intention to make and keep commitments
- Demonstrate a greater ability to cultivate attention and generate awareness
- Develop attitudes of kindness, compassion, and curiosity that support habit change
Anyone looking to move beyond old patterns and end bad habits for good is welcome.
