Breaking Bad Habits, Developing Good Habits with Shaun Kennedy

Ref: C2346015

In our daily routines we may be pushed by basic instincts to habitually engage in certain activities. On the positive spectrum we may find ourselves inclined to go for a walk every afternoon. Negatively, we may crave supper at 11.30 every night. Often, we can feel helpless to our persistent routines and autonomy, which can in turn impact our mental wellbeing. This course aims to define via lecture what could be seen as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ habits both broadly and specifically to each student. This will then lead to discussion, planning, and exercises that will hopefully assist individuals in adjusting their lifestyle positively and regaining a sense of control. DISCLAIMER: This course is NOT a suitable solution to dealing with addictions. Professional help is advised in addressing harmful activities.
