Dr. Amy Johnson on Neuroplasticity
Do you ever feel that bad habits have taken over your life? When stress and anxiety mount, do your go-to behaviors wreak havoc on your time, relationships, work, and finances? According to Dr. Amy Johnson, psychologist and author of the popular audiobook The Little Book of Big Change, changing bad habits is far less daunting and much more simple than you might think. It relies on neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to reorganize itself — and requires no willpower at all!
Today, we’re sharing an excerpt from the audiobook The Little Book of Big Change: The No-Willpower Approach to Breaking Any Habit, written by psychologist Amy Johnson, who teaches us that no matter what your bad habit is, you have the power to change it. Drawing on a powerful combination of neuroscience and spirituality, this audiobook will show you that your habits and addictions are the result of simple brain wiring that is easily reversed.
