The mind is a terrible thing to waste. The world has changed at lightning speed over the last two decades. As a result, most of us are living our lives in a frantic blur of incessant emails, social media engagement, text messages as well as an over-abundance of multi-tasking – which leaves our minds in a state of low concentration, high stress and fragmented attention.
Our minds are wasting away in this damaging environment which has become a normal way of life for the majority of people. Lost, Found & Rewired: Mind Tools to Shift You From Stressed and Frazzled to Calm and Vital will give you the tools you need to shut off that distracting mind chatter, rewire your brains so you can get back to feeling calm, happy, purposeful, connected and joyful. When you understand how your brain has evolved, then you will be able to learn how to re-wire it and reap the endless benefits.
Written by a neuro-psychologist, but taught in language that everyone can understand. Here’s some of what you’ll discover in this exceptional book:
-How your brain conserves energy so it can survive and makes decisions on automatic pilot that may not be in your best interest.
-Why your brain has something in it called a “negativity bias” which causes you to attract the bad and repel the good.
-How negative experiences in your life become neural pathways in your brain, requiring re-wiring to replace the harmful effects.
-How the fight or flight response dictates your life if you aren’t aware of it.
-Why a few moments of intentional stillness a day can have a huge impact in your life.
This is a must read for everyone who wants to quiet their minds and find more inner happiness, peace and joy.
