Do you ever find yourself eating or drinking too much because you're feeling sad or anxious? Do you spend large swaths of time online without any real purpose? Do you judge yourself harshly, or worry yourself into procrastination and insomnia?
We all struggle with something. And anxiety, emotional eating, smoking, internet scrolling, self-judgment and other habits rob us of happiness, health, sleep, and connections with family, friends, and even ourselves. Habits are conditioned patterns of behavior that have become hard-wired default responses to life's complexities.
Judson Brewer, MD, PhD, neuroscientist and addiction psychiatrist, has studied the science of habit change for decades. With a combination of ancient teachings, modern science, and clinical experience, he has developed and tested a step-by-step approach to habit change. Multiple studies have demonstrated this model to be effective with smoking cessation, habitual eating, and anxiety.
Join Dr. Jud and psychologist Robin Boudette, PhD, to learn a tested, three-step model of behavior change. Through individual and group exercises, guided meditations and contemplations, dialogue, and inquiry, you:
- Learn the brain processes involved in habit formation
- Explore an evidenced-based model for changing unwanted habits
- Discover healthy, sustainable strategies to adopt healthy new behaviors and learn how to integrate them into your life
- Connect with a caring community
The workshop is suitable for a wide range of participants. It is relevant to individuals who want to change their relationship with anxiety and other habits, as well as health-care professionals seeking ways to assist clients and patients in managing anxiety and changing habits.
