Overcoming Soft Addictions

Taught by: Jillian Eichel

Do you wish you had more time, money, or energy? Would you like to have more purpose and meaning out of your crowded days? The answer is simple: cut out the Soft Addictions! Many of us are trapped by these seemingly harmless habits such as shopping, watching TV, and surfing the internet. These seductive habits not only rob us of our time and money, but also numb our feelings, zap our energy, and cloud our clarity of mind.

In this interactive workshop, Wright Foundation coach Jillian Eichel will teach you how to bust your soft addictions by discovering the deeper yearnings behind them. Drawing from research in Dr. Judith’s Wright seminal book The Soft Addiction Solution, Jillian will break down several common myths surrounding Soft Addictions and help you escape the trivial routines that fill your days in order to discover more passion, love, commitment, and meaning in your life.

Hear real people share stories of their own Soft Addictions and how they are able to overcome them

Courses at the Wright Foundation

“What I really appreciate about the skills in the courses I learned is that they are not only exciting to learn, but they are applicable in all kinds of situations. I use what I have learned about myself and relationships with my family, running my business, and even in my faith-community. What you learn is inspirational, but also incredibly pragmatic.”

"I didn't just learn about emotional intelligence, I actually put into practice. Using the tools I learned at the Wright Foundation helped me not just finish my dissertation and PhD at Northwestern but to become a student my advisor brags about"
