Rewire Your Brain for Happiness A Step-By-Step Program"Self-Directed Brain Change" is based on a key emerging insight from neuroscience: that to keep our ancestors alive, the human brain evolved to stick to negative experiences like hook and loop and shrug off the positive ones like Teflon. The good news, teaches Rick Hanson, is that we can retrain our neural structure out of "sheer survival" mode and into one of greater well-being, mental clarity, and moment-to-moment appreciation. In this practice-focused program, Dr. Hanson teaches us how to: Shift our evolutionary fear and survival bias into one of "taking in the good"Use positive moments or states to rewire happiness as an enduring neural "trait"Heal difficult or painful emotional memories to "fill the hole in the heart"Increase and deepen daily experiences of love, gratitude, and contentmentBuild inner resilience in the face of stress and challenging situations, improve relationships, and much moreIs it possible to rewire yourself for happiness? A growing body of evidence from this pioneering neuropsychologist and his colleagues says yes, we can and experience greater fulfillment and contentment the moment we begin. With "Self-Directed Brain Change," you will learn how."
