Dr. Jud Brewer on The Science of Anxiety, Cravings + How to Change Negative Behavior

In this episode I’m talking to Dr. Jud Brewer, Director of Research and Innovation at the Brown Mindfulness Center and associate professor in psychiatry at the School of Medicine at Brown University, executive medical director at Sharecare, as well as a research affiliate at MIT.  Dr. Jud has spent over 20 years at Yale, MIT and Brown University researching how our brains form negative behavior patterns, bad habits and addictions, and the specific techniques needed to create lasting change. He is the author of The Craving Mind and Unwinding Anxiety, and developer of mindfulness apps Unwinding Anxiety, Breathe and Eat Right Now. We discuss addictions; what happens to our brains when we have a craving; how to change a behavior; how to manage anxiety; how to stop letting cravings drive our lives and so much more.
