Sorry for two posts on one day. I signed up to post them and didn’t realize it was the same day 😦



If you want to feel happier, more optimistic, more joyful, and resilient, Dr. Amen’s groundbreaking new book is for you.
We’ve all felt anxious, sad, traumatized, grief-stricken, stressed, angry, or hopeless at some point in life. It’s perfectly normal to go through emotional crises or have periods when you feel panicked or out of sorts. It is how you respond to these challenges that will make all the difference in how you feel—not just immediately, but also in the long run. Unfortunately, many people turn to self-medicating behaviors, such as overeating, drugs, alcohol, risky sexual behavior, anger, or wasting time on mindless TV, video games, Internet surfing, or shopping. And even though these behaviors may give temporary relief from feeling bad, they usually only prolong and exacerbate the problems—or cause other, more serious ones.Is it possible to feel better—and make it last?Renowned physician, psychiatrist, brain-imaging researcher, and founder of Amen Clinics Dr. Daniel Amen understands how critical it is for you to know what will help you feel better fast, now and later. In Feel Better Fast and Make It Last, you’ll discover new, powerful brain-based strategies to quickly gain control over anxiety, worry, sadness, stress and anger, strengthening your resilience and giving you joy and purpose for a lifetime.
My thoughts:
I am very interested in the brain so this book was right up my alley. Even though it is very textbook like I still found externally interesting and I am trying so of the techniques listed in this book.
I have added some supplements to my diet and trying some of the breathing exercises and using them in my class hoping to get them more focused. As a teacher I also appreciated a deeper look into why some of my students might act the way they do.
This is long book but worth the time if you want to know more about how your brain works and ways to heal it.
