How your level of stress impacts building new habits

This activity is delivered by NeuroCapability. You will be directed to the providers website.

In this module find out why habits are hard to break and to build. At times of stress and overwhelm it can be even more challenging! Understanding how habits can be formed and old habits broken, will support you to adapt to change and create new wiring in the brain to support the changes you are trying to make stick. 
We have so many habits that are part of our daily routine that our brains have automated so we don’t have to think about them. In this webinar we dive deep into what are habits, how they develop and the challenges to forming new habits and breaking unhelpful ones. Find out why stress impacts your ability to form new habits and adapt to change. You will learn from the experts about the best tools and strategies for building habits and breaking unhelpful ones. 

Upon satisfactory completion of this activity, you will be able to: 
  • Describe what a habit is and how they are formed. 
  • Identify the challenges to forming new habits and learning new things. 
  • Describe why the brain resists change. 
  • Apply practical strategies to build habits and break unhelpful ones. 

We are operating at a time of rapid change where we are expected to learn new things and learn them fast. This webinar will equip you with the knowledge and skills to support habit formation to thrive in a fast-paced world.
