Item Details

Dean examines of one of the most powerful and under-appreciated processes in the mind: habits. He explains why seemingly easy habits, like eating an apple a day, can be surprisingly difficult to form, and how to take charge of your brain's natural "autopilot" to make any change stick. Any behavior is more than just a product of what you think. It is possible to bend your habits to your will-- and be happier, more creative, and more productive. The psychologist behind PsyBlog explores the science of habit--and how you can change yours for the better.
