Even when faced with a life-threatening situation, people tend to resist change despite knowing the consequences. Understanding the neuroscience of change and how the brain works during change can help us manage resistance towards change and develop strategies to boost our brain’s capacity for neuroplasticity.
Changing a habit or embedding a new behavior takes effort and focused attention. It can feel physiologically uncomfortable and quite literally painful to override habits. It’s no wonder people often avoid change or find it hard to maintain commitment. Under pressure, tired or distracted, our pre-frontal cortex can’t keep us focused and we relapse to earlier behaviors and habits.
• Understand what change generates in the brain.
• Learn about the emotions that will probably come up
• Simple exercises to demonstrate how change feels
• Acquire strategies to overcome emotions and thoughts that are detrimental to change.
• Learn how to train a brain for change
