Publisher's Summary

Have you found yourself doing something and thinking, Why do I keep doing this? We all have an unhealthy habit - or two, or three. Yours may be as simple as wasting time on the Internet, constantly checking your email, or spending too much time in front of the TV. Or it may be more serious, like habitual drinking, emotional overeating, constant self-criticism, or chronic worrying. Whatever your harmful habit is - you have the power to break it.

The Here-and-Now Habit provides proven, effective techniques to help you stop existing on autopilot and start living in the here and now. You'll learn how to cultivate mindfulness to calm and focus your mind, be aware of thoughts without identifying with them or believing they are true, deal with difficult emotions, and clarify your own intentions regarding unhealthy habits by asking yourself, What do I want? How important is it to me to make this change?

By learning to pay attention to your thoughts and actions in the moment, you'll discover how to let go of old patterns and create healthier habits and ways of living that will make you feel good about yourself. And when you feel good about you, you can do just about anything.
