Description: Most of us have some kind of habit in our lives that we're either trying to change or want to change. Just because you've entrenched in a particular habit doesn't mean it's forever. The key to transforming our relationship with exercising, productivity, eating, meditating and even with stronger addictive behaviors is understanding your habits and changing your relationship to them.

In this three-hour workshop, Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D., will explore the neuroscience and psychology behind why we do the things we do that keep us stuck. Participants will be shown how to identify cues that trigger a subconscious habit loop and present specific mindful methods to help us break free from our bad habits and open us up to possibilities and opportunities to develop new healthier habits to take action with. This space of clarity and choice is "The Now Effect."
