Our Craving Minds: Why We Get Hooked and How Mindfulness Helps Us Break Bad Habits
Judson Brewer at the 2018 At Work Summit
Judson Brewer presents the role of mindfulness in treating addiction from a research and neuroscience perspective. He identified a missing gap in the field of psychiatric research and foresaw the opportunity to procure research on the effects of mindfulness on reducing addictive behavior. According to the research, mindfulness practices produced outcomes up to 5x more effective than traditional approaches to resolving addiction. Brewer explains how mindfulness assists in the role of uncoupling cravings with addictive behavior. This awareness by mindfulness techniques has helped clients to be empowered and awakened in habitual behaviors.
