Slaves To Habit

1 x 52 HD
Broadcaster:  CBC

Smoking, overeating, compulsive 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 and gives in to temptation. This revealing new documentary takes an in-depth look at bad habits, the behaviour that surrounds them, and the startling new science on the interaction between brain chemistry, habit, and self-control.

Following three individuals over a 6-week period as they struggle to break their bad habits, Slaves to Habit features some of the world’s foremost authorities on how our habits affect or control our lives. These include psychologist Dr. John C. Norcross, author of ‘Changeology: 5 steps to realizing your goals and resolutions’ and Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times reporter Charles Duhigg, author of ‘The Power of Habit – Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business’.

Why is it that some people, despite years of trying, still struggle to change, while others seem to remake themselves overnight? Duhigg takes us to the thrilling edge of scientific discoveries that explain why habits exist and how they can be changed. In the end, Slaves to Habit is an essential tool that reveals how we can harness and apply recent science on habit to transform our businesses, our communities, and our own lives.
