Hacking our Habit Minds for Better Health

October 18, 2019
8:55am - 9:15am
Commonwealth Main Stage
We are creatures of habit. Driven by biological processes set up to help us survive, our minds are constantly craving experiences and substances-from smartphones to romance to alcohol-and this craving leads to habit formation. This talk will explore the behavioral and mental processes that foster craving and consequent habit formation, the impact these have on individual and societal health, and how we can "hack" our own neurobiological reward circuitry using practices such as mindfulness, to foster greater health and wellbeing.
