Train Your Brain for Happiness

Summary

Happiness: Is It a Matter of Luck...or a Learnable Skill? Why do some people seem happier than others, regardless of their situation? In the face of fear, sadness, and other emotional suffering, we may believe that there's simply something wrong with us. Yet in his decades of pioneering research, Dr. Rick Hanson has revealed a simple yet profound truth: Happiness can be learned. And like any other skill, it can support us throughout our lives. Overcoming Our "Negativity Bias" Because the brain evolved to help us survive dangers and threats, teaches Hanson, negative experiences stick to our minds like Velcro, while positive ones slip away like Teflon. It's the reason why it's so hard to rest fully in our moments of contentment, and why we get pulled so easily into unhappiness. But there's hope. Ever-growing neuroscience revelations show that we can change our biological negativity bias. We can train ourselves to build a reservoir of uplifting experiences on a neurological level. We can shift the balance of our reality toward happiness. A Neuroscience-Based Program Refined by Years of Research In this complete audio program, Rick Hanson guides you through a wealth of core insights, life strategies, and powerful practices that have helped thousands. With him, you'll learn to move out of despair and into resilience, from worry to inner peace, reactivity to grounded self-control, shame to self-compassion, pessimism to an abiding optimism. Highlights: Overcome your brain's negativity bias Take back control of your emotions and your life Heal old inner wounds to nurture security, connection, and compassion Create a reserve of positive experiences to draw upon when you need it Amplify your appreciation and enjoyment in each moment Get into the "Green Zone", your optimal state of fulfillment, love, and courage Over eight hours of actionable insights and instruction for a happier life PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Bouncing Back

Summary

Winner of the 2013 Books for a Better Life Acorda Wellness Award and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award. Resilience is the ability to face and handle life's challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. While resilience is innate in the brain, over time, we learn unhelpful patterns, which then become fixed in our neural circuitry. But science is now revealing that what previously seemed hardwired can be rewired, and Bouncing Back shows us how. With powerful, time-tested exercises, Linda Graham guides us in rebuilding our core well-being and disaster-proofing our brains. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.
