By Richard O’Connor, Ph.D.
#5207. This book offers a brain-based guide to permanently ending bad habits. Richard O’Connor shows how we actually have two brains – a conscious deliberate self and an automatic self that makes most of our decisions – and how we can train the latter to ignore distractions, withstand temptations, and interrupt reflexive, self-sabotaging responses.
Readers learn why bad habits die so hard. They also are shown how to rewire their brains to develop healthier circuitry, training the automatic self to make wiser decisions; ignore distractions, withstand temptations; and interrupt their reflexive responses before those responses get them in trouble.
Rewire gives readers a road map to overcoming the most common self-destructive habits, including procrastination, excessive worrying, Internet addiction, overeating, risk-taking, and self-medication, among others.
