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.

In The Press

“I loved reading this book! The Little Book of Big Change will help the field of addictions and anyone suffering from a debilitating habit to find an easier, more enlightened path to full recovery, not only from habits and addictions, but a recovery of the innate health that is all of our birthright. I will encourage all the treatment centers I work with to use this as a course book for treatment. Johnson has moved the field forward to a new paradigm of treatment and recovery from addictions.”
Joseph Bailey, MA, LP, licensed psychologist, author of The Serenity Principle, and coauthor of Slowing Down to the Speed of Life
