Anxiety can be devastating, with sufferers unable to function at work, school, or even with their families.
But the good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way!
Dr. Judson Brewer, Director of Research at the Center of Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and author of The Craving Mind defines anxiety as a habit and not a condition, which can be broken through consistent practice and self-reflection.
In fact, according to Brewer, anxiety can be thought of as the ultimate form of attentional addiction that causes people to become hyper-aware of their surroundings, both real and imagined, while ignoring more productive means of self-regulating behavior.
To break this habit, you need to make some small changes in your life that will get you into the right mindset and allow you to change your relationship with anxiety forever.
In Brewer’s video The Habit Loop – Anxiety you’ll learn how habits drive both good and bad behavior and how you can use that knowledge to improve your quality of life once and for all.
