Habit Change (Online)

Emotional agility is learning to be aware of emotions in a balanced, clear way so we can respond appropriately. It is with emotional agility that we can interrupt habits of reactivity as well as cravings and urges. We don’t have to be overcome by cravings, rather we can step out of old patterns into new ways of responding. Understanding habitual patterns allows for flexibility in our choices.
