Dr. Jud Brewer is the Director of Research and Innovation at the Mindfulness Center and associate professor in psychiatry at the School of Medicine at Brown University, as well as a research affiliate at MIT.
As an addiction psychiatrist and internationally known expert in mindfulness training for treating addictions, Dr. Jud has developed and tested novel mindfulness programs for habit change, including both in-person and app-based treatments for smoking, emotional eating, and anxiety. In 2012, Dr. Jud gave a TED talk about a simple way to break a bad habit, and in 2017, he wrote a book on the subject called The Craving Mind.
In times like these, mental habits are easy to form. There is a lot of scary headlines and false information out there right now, and when fear sets in, we often try to medicate it with bad habits.
So join me on Episode 930 and listen to what Dr. Jud has to say about the coronavirus and how to keep our minds from spiraling into fear and anxiety.
