Unwinding Anxiety: Mindfulness-Based Habit Change
A Live Online Three-Hour Workshop
Stress Eating? Binge surfing? Worrying? Procrastinating?
Do you feel stuck in patterns that keep you from living your life?
Anxiety is often beneath these patterns.
Unwinding Anxiety with Mindfulness-Based Habit Change
In the chaos of our everyday lives, we often run on auto-pilot finding ourselves caught in unhealthy habit patterns. These habits rob us of happiness, health, sleep, and connections with family, friends, and even ourselves. While mindfulness has been around for thousands of years, recent research has helped us understand how it works in the brain and the neural pathways that make the practice of mindfulness effective in habit change.
Mindfulness-Based Habit Change (MBHC) is based on the work of psychiatrist and neuroscience researcher Judson Brewer, MD Ph.D. as described in his recent book Unwinding Anxiety and in the article How Anxiety Hides Your Habits. Integrating both ancient wisdom and new learnings from neuroscience, we take a step-by-step approach to habit change that has been demonstrated to be effective with smoking cessation, alleviating stress eating, and reducing anxiety.
In this workshop, participants will:
- Become aware of habit loops
- Bring mindfulness to your experience to explore the results of your actions
- Tune-in to the effects of healthy, life-sustaining habits
- Discover freedom of choice based on your experience
Note: This workshop is appropriate for those who have some experience with mindfulness practice.
For further habit change practice, see the full six-week class beginning Oct. 19.
