Doc Zone Slaves to Habit

Doc Zone Slaves to Habit

Smoking, overeating, shopping, nail-biting… We all have a habit that we would like to get rid of, but where the brain is willing, the body is often weak. We take an in-depth look at habits and the new science on the interaction between brain chemistry and self-control. Slaves to Habit follows three individuals over a six-week period as they struggle to break their bad habits — smoking, overeating and compulsive shopping. In the end, we understand that habits aren’t destiny and that by harnessing the new science on habit, we can transform our businesses, our communities and our lives.
