Description
In Wired for Joy , researcher and New York Times bestselling author Laurel Mellin presents a simple yet proven way to train your brain to move through stress and back to joy. Her method focuses on rewiring the emotional brain-the cauldron of our stress-rather than the thinking brain, which has been the focus of most other stress-busting methods. Based on the cutting-edge science of neuroplasticity, Mellin outlines the five emotional states of the brain. For each state, she presents a specific tool that easily and quickly switches the brain back to well-being-in essence, retraining your brain to be in joy more moments of the day. Eighty percent of health problems today are due to the downstream effects of stress. And because an overload of stress leads the brain to become wired for extremes of emotions, thoughts, and behaviour, you can see its negative effects in every area of your life. Stress symptoms include everything from high blood pressure, to heart disease, to addictions, to chronic anger, so learning to break free from stress could dramatically improve your mood, your relationships, your health-and your life. Imagine a world without all the jaw clenching, nail biting, and stress-induced meltdowns. With the five simple tools in Wired for Joy, you can finally change the wiring that triggers your stress, instead of focusing on its symptoms. And once you make that switch, life becomes easier and more rewarding; your stress symptoms-depression, anxiety, over eating-tend to fade; and you experience a new sense of freedom in your life.
