Little changes can make a big, big difference! In The Little Book of Big Change, psychologist Amy Johnson shows you how to rewire your brain and overcome your bad habits—once and for all.
No matter what your bad habit is, you have the power to change it. Drawing on a powerful combination of neuroscience and spirituality, this book will show you that you are not your habits. Rather, your habits and addictions are the result of simple brain wiring that is easily reversed. By learning to stop bad habits at the source, you will take charge of your habits and addictions for good.
Anything done repeatedly has the potential to form neural circuitry in the brain. In this light, habits and addictions are impersonal brain wiring problems that result from taking your habitual thinking as truth, and acting on that thinking in the form of doing your habit—over and over. This book offers a number of small changes you can make in your everyday life that will help you stop your bad habit in its tracks.
If you want to understand the science behind your habit, make the decision to end it, and commit to real, lasting change, this book will help you to finally take charge of your life—once and for all.

Again, I'd like to stress that the concepts in this book were not "new" to me. I first read the first edition of Brain Over Binge (by Kathryn Hansen) about three years ago and have been using buddhist philosophy as a practical guide in changing my behaviors. BUT this book (The Little Book of Big Change by Amy Johnson) just solidified it for me. I'm now looking forward to my urges!! Where before I was absolutely terrified of them. This is nothing short of amazing to me. I no longer have "powerless" feeling over my urges.
I also see how the techniques in this book easily lend themselves to all habits not just my obsession with food. Thank you for this book!
Also, she was super helpful in a follow up email I wrote with specific questions. She just exudes a "labor of love" attitude with this stuff. Incredible! Highly recommend.
"to see the light". Meaning, what is really driving your behavior. For years and years I felt completely at the mercy of my habits. Thinking I was abnormal, not being able to control myself in certain situations. (I have a few vices so I'm being non-specific for that reason). I no longer feel controlled by my urges. Now I can see them for what they are-just vaporous, passing clouds of thought that dissipate as quickly as they come. The trick here is to recognize a thought as just that-a thought, nothing more. Your thoughts cannot force you into action and if you just hang out in a non-judgmental way, not giving attention to the unwanted thought, it just goes away on its own. Nothing else needs to be done. It seems so simple it's almost stupid, but it's a fact. I sit here right now bewildered as to how I wasted absolute years of my life trying to
manipulate and control my habits, when all I had to do was; LET IT GO. If you don't believe me, read this book. If your mind doesn't see things differently at the end, start over and read it again. You probably won't miraculously change over night because old habits form such deep neural pathways, but as you practice the pause in action, change comes on pretty quickly. I'm actually surprised at myself everyday now. Even though I'm not exactly where I want to be yet, I can enjoy where I am and that is huge. I accomplished more in 2 weeks than I have in 30 years. Dr Amy Johnson has multiple free videos on You Tube that compliment this book wonderfully that helps get you just that much farther. Since purchasing this gem of a book, I have since done one of her priceless online classes and currently am enrolled in her online coaching class. You can also go to her website and sign up for her emails. About once a month you receive a newsletter chock full of helpful information. Best thing about this author is that she truly, without a doubt has helping people as her number one goal. She has an incredible amount of free information available to everyone. Read this book- once you see what I have you will never be the same! Thank you so much Dr Amy Johnson. I'm forever grateful.
