MINI EPISODE: Need help easing anxieties? Or resisting your cravings for sugar? Julie does. For this week’s episode, she sought help from neuroscientist Judson Brewer, author of Unwinding Anxiety: New Science Shows How to Break the Cycles of Worry and Fear to Heal Your Mind and The Craving Mind: From Cigarettes to Cellphones to Love--Why We Get Hooked and How We Can Break Bad Habits. The Director of Research and Innovation at Brown University’s Mindfulness Center, Dr. Brewer offers guidance for breaking bad habits--including spirals of worrying--using mindfulness and other brain-based practices. Have his strategies worked for Julie? Take a listen to her conversation with Eve and find out!

This is the first in a new type of episode for Book Dreams. Periodically Eve or Julie will pick a book on a topic she needs help with, and then they’ll come together to assess whether the book actually helped. We hope you enjoy it!
