Are you trying to create a good habit or break a bad one? That’s Dr. Jud Brewer’s speciality.
Dr. Jud (MD, PhD) has over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training and a career in scientific research. His interest in how the brain works has led him to work with people to make deep, permanent change in their lives. He has developed mindfulness programs for habit change, including in-person and app-based treatments for smoking, emotional eating, and anxiety.
Earlier this year, Dr. Jud released a new book, “Unwinding Anxiety - New Science Shows How to Break the Cycles of Worry and Fear to Heal Your Mind.” His book is a clinically proven step-by-step plan to break the cycle of worry and fear that drives anxiety and addictive habits. Dr. Jud explains how to uproot anxiety at its source using brain-based techniques.
Check out Sonya’s previous interview with Dr. Jud in early 2020 about how to overcome bad habits and cravings using the power of the mind.
In this episode, Dr. Jud talks about looking at anxiety as a habit and not relying on willpower to change that habit. He also speaks about curiosity and mindfulness.
