Dr. Jud Brewer is an absolute power house. He is an internationally known thought leader in the field of habit change and the “science of self-mastery.” He has over 20 years of experience in mindfulness training and is the author of “The Craving Mind: from cigarettes to smartphones to love, why we get hooked and how we can break bad habits.” What habits do you have? Considering a habit is usually always a bad habit, do you think your bad habits are actually addictions? We are all addicted to something, some more than just one thing. It may be social media, porn, sex, food, shopping, alcohol, etc. Dr. Brewer has spent his career on studying mindfulness and the power that we can have over these habits or addictions. Bernadette and Dr. Brewer have a very candid and open conversation, you won’t want to miss.
