Owning It: Is Your Anxiety A Habit? With Dr Judson Brewer

Owning It: The Anxiety Podcast

Welcome back to season 6! Dr Judson Brewer is legit amazing; he has his own neuroscience lab in which he and his team carry out lots of research to back up everything you'll find in his latest book Unwinding Anxiety, which is probably one of the best books I've ever read on the subject. In it, and in our conversation here, Jud puts forward the idea that maybe anxiety is simply a habit loop we've got stuck, something that plays out several times a day in the format of trigger, behaviour, result. It's a really interesting and empowering idea because when you start to wrap your head around it, it becomes something you can better manage or almost hack. My journal - OWN IT: THE ANXIETY JOURNAL, is available to order here.My books are all here on AMAZON.

#199: Can Awareness Help Us Unwind Anxiety? with Dr. Judson Brewer

Dhru Purohit Podcast

Anxiety might mean different things to different people, but one commonality is the literal feeling of being wound up and tangled. The brain is always looking for information to try to predict the future, in order to keep us safe. While this may have been helpful when we were trying not to starve and dodging large predators, in modern times it can cause us to spiral into anxiety and worry.Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, Dhru talks to Dr. Judson Brewer about the patterns involved with anxious thinking, how they also relate to addiction, and mindfulness exercises that can help us break free.Dr. Brewer is an internationally renowned addiction psychiatrist and neuroscientist. He is an associate professor in the School of Public Health, and Medical School at Brown University.  His 2016 TED talk, "A Simple Way to Break a Bad Habit," has been viewed over 16 million times. He has trained Olympic athletes and coaches, government ministers and business leaders. His first book, The Craving Mind: From Cigarettes to Smartphones to Love, Why We Get Hooked and How We Can Break Bad Habits, was published in over 16 languages.In this episode, Dr. Brewer explains how positive and negative reinforcements shape our behavior and why humans evolved this way. Anxiety and addiction are both heavily dictated by this push and pull of behavior—Dr. Brewer tells us why embracing the feelings we often want to run away from and bringing greater awareness to our habits is the first step towards changing them. In this episode, we dive into:-How anxiety gets wound-up (1:44)-Dr. Brewer’s experience with anxiety and panic attacks (10:44) -How panic attacks can turn into panic disorders (13:52) -The connection between anxiety and addiction (18:03)-Mindfulness training for smoking cessation (25:01)-Why awareness is the first step in overcoming anxiety (32:35)-The connection between blood sugar imbalance and anxiety (40:32) -The global pandemic and anxiety (46:04)-Mind-mapping exercise for unwinding anxiety (49:17) -How to use the Unwind Anxiety app (58:32)For more on Dr. Brewer you can follow him on Instagram @Dr.Jud, on Facebook @MindSciencesInc, on Twitter @JudBrewer, on YouTube @DrJud, and through his website https://drjud.com/.
