How to rewire your brain to change your habits

By Michelle May, M.D.

In the video in my last post, I explained that most resolutions are doomed to fail because people usually make a critical mistake. (If you missed it, take a moment to check it out!)

Today, I want to talk about how you can actually rewire your brain for change…

Now, let’s say that you want to change your eating habits in the new year. Mindfulness helps you become aware of the thoughts and feelings that are driving your current eating habits. Once you recognize your patterns, you are able to make changes at the root cause level – so the changes will stick this time!

Based on what you are learning, is there a pattern you’d like to change in the new year? I’d love to hear about it! Please comment below.

In my next post, I have a little gift to help you with your resolutions.
