Can anxiety and worry be perpetuated like a habit? Anxiety levels are increasing individually and collectively in modern day. Faced with uncertainty, an overabundance of information (and misinformation), among other challenges, our minds struggle to keep up. Our brains default to old survival mechanism to help us deal with anxiety, which can lead to the development of unhealthy coping habits (e.g. stress eating) and ironically feed anxiety as a habit itself.
This habit loop is also true for physical challenges, chronic illness and pain, which in turn often exacerbate symptoms and pain levels.
Drawing on clinical work, neuroscience research studies and ancient wisdom teachings, Drs Brewer and Wolf will discuss the underlying behavioral and neurobiological mechanisms of why anxiety and other habits are formed and how we can paradoxically tap into these very processes to uproot them and to also downregulate pain signals.
