Podcast #69: How To Break A Bad Habit with Dr. Judson Brewer

January 28, 2020

We all have bad habits that we struggle with, from unhealthy eating to smoking.  Today’s podcast examines how to break a bad habit with psychiatrist and addiction expert, Dr. Judson Brewer. 

Judson Alyn Brewer, M.D., Ph.D. had devoted his career to the mechanisms of habit, and his discoveries have been life changing for many people. His Youtube video “A Simple Way To Break A Bad Habit” has over 8 million views.

He has published numerous articles, and his work has been featured on 60 Minutes, CNN, NPR, and in multiple magazines. As director of research at the Center of Mindfulness, Dr. Brewer has developed mindfulness programs for the treatment of addictions. 

He is also an author and wrote a book called “The Craving Mind: From Cigarettes to Smartphones to Love – Why We Get Hooked and How We Can Break Bad Habits.”

What we learn today is that the key to breaking bad habits is not white-knuckled willpower, but with mindfulness. And Dr. Brewer shares the steps you can take to implement mindfulness into your daily life.

I hope this podcast can help you break a bad habit. 

In addition, I made a big announcement in today’s podcast. My new book, “The Easy 5-Ingredient Cookbook” is now available for preorder on Amazon. 

When I was presented with the challenge of developing 100 plant-based recipes with only five ingredients, at first, I was hesitant. But then I realized that one of the most common barriers to eating plant-based foods was the learning curve and the time it took to cook. And I wanted to share my knowledge and everything I have learned to help make things easy and delicious for you.

Please preorder on Amazon today because pre-sales matter. When you preorder a book, it's a clear message to Amazon that there is a demand for my book, and it will show up more readily in Amazon search.

As always, thank you for your support, kindness and for listening.
