Most of the time we are behaving on ‘autopilot’, following many habits that we have created since we were little babies. That’s a good thing, because it allows us to do many things, trivial, amazingly complex and even chaotic, using very little energy from our brain at an incredible speed.
Now and then our existing autopilot does not help us achieve our intended effect, however. Instead of helping us do the right thing, it seems to do the exact opposite. For instance, we can get angry in a meeting at work while we know that that’s not a good idea, or we drink yet another cup of coffee while we know that too much of the black goodness is not healthy.
When we realise our existing behavior is not helping, we can try to change our emotional autopilot to become more effective. Changing our behaviour and habits usually starts rationally and with the best intentions, but often doesn’t go easily and fails after some time.
We need to make sure the changes we make to become more effective make us feel safe and happy.
Neuroscientists agree that to develop healthy, lasting changes in our behaviour, we have to find, adopt and regularly practice new habits that feel right for quite some time. Somehow we have to make sure the new behaviour we want to adopt feels safe enough and makes us feel happier than not doing it.
From this session you will start to understand from a neurological perspective why it can be so hard to behave the way you rationally intend to, and what you can do about it.
We will share some recent insights from neuroscience and from evolutionary biology, focusing on the chemistry of happiness, and how that can help us to learn new behaviour. We will spend a large part of the session discussing your experience and ideas on the topics as well.
