Breaking Old Patterns
Instructions for "Breaking Old Patterns":
For the past minute, you have practiced being in control of your 'monkey mind'. You have promoted relaxation, and improved your focus.
Aim to do this several times a day for the next week. (It may help to set a reminder on your phone.) Each time you practice, know that you are doing a little more to break the habits of your automatic thinking, and take control of your life.

Neuroscience research shows that "neurons that fire together, wire together" (Hebb, 2009). Like a path worn in grass, neuronal pathways strengthen with repetitive use. Mindfulness practice is your opportunity to establish healthy pathways in your brain, so it no longer chooses default responses such as anger, anxiety, stress, or fear.
