Objectives

  1. Identify habits that your clients wish to change and other habits that increase well-being and require development.
  2. Explain why and how mindfulness helps bring behaviors (and patterns of thinking) into the light of awareness to effect meaningful change.
  3. Define the main brain processes that underpin habit formation and why habits, once established, can be difficult to change.
  4. Summarize the latest research on habit formation and studies showing the benefits of mindfulness in effecting habit change.
  5. Describe four main kinds of habits (wanting, resisting, distraction, and doing/busyness) and how mindfulness helps work to support change in each area.
  6. Demonstrate mindfulness techniques, for building the ‘muscle’ of attention and working non-judgmentally with thoughts that can be shared with your clients.
  7. Apply mindfulness strategies before, during, and after habits arise to improve the probability of behavior change.

Outline

Habits and the Role of Mindfulness in Habit Change

  • The brain processes that underpin how habits form and why habits are difficult to change
  • The role of mindfulness in bringing what is automatic and unconscious into the light of awareness
  • Different kinds of habits—including habits of wanting, aversion, distraction, and doing/ busyness—and how mindfulness can help transform each of these distinct patterns

The Power of Intention

  • The importance of connecting with our deepest intentions—what matters most to us
  • Identify the habits of thought, word, and action that are obstacles to happiness and well-being
  • Make a specific commitment and take concrete steps to bring our behavior into alignment with our deepest aspirations

Harness Attention to Effect Habit Change

  • Skills to train participants in moment-by-moment awareness to identify and work with habits
  • Before they arise—by avoiding the triggers that activate them

  • After they manifest—meet ourselves and our actions with acceptance, kindness, and commitment if we have repeated an unhealthy habit

Cultivate Attitudes that Support Habit Change

  • Acceptance of what’s unfolding—the ‘good, the bad, and the ugly’
  • Kindness towards ourselves and our experience, as well as to others
  • Curiosity or interest in what we are experiencing
