Publisher's Summary

Why do our brains seem obsessed with problems both real and imagined? Believe it or not, it's not your fault - it's your default! Sharie breaks this all down so you can finally understand why your brain loves worrying about problems and how you can stop and finally get off your worry-go-round.Your brain is programed to believe that impending doom is around every corner due to an outdated evolutionary trait that helped ancient humans survive. But in the present day, this program is not only obsolete - it is making us sick! If you have ever been kept awake at night as your mind conjured up fears of sickness, deaths of loved ones, financial crisis, and car wrecks, you know what I mean.
You will learn how to stop the urge to get upset simply because your boss is annoyed at you or you are stuck in traffic. You will learn how to redirect your brain's distorted perception of problems using easy-to-follow, proven techniques. You will learn how to implement a targeted program that will stop your stress response in its tracks, leaving you calmer, stronger, and happier. You will finally have the control over your moods and behaviors that you have been seeking. You will replace feeling vulnerable, exhausted, and joyless with a brand-new positive outlook that will change your life.
In this book, which is packed with the latest groundbreaking scientific discoveries, you'll come to understand how three neurochemicals - dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin - along with the brain's amygdala,drive all of your behaviors, habits, passions, and attitudes. You will learn how a good mood is increased by triggering these three neurochemicals. The workbook is filled with self-probing questions and exercises where you'll make critical discoveries about your own beliefs and thought patterns and make big strides toward being happy in only a few minutes a day, allowing you to see concrete, lasting results in just two to four weeks!

I have been depressed and diagnosed with panic attack disorder. I have read soooo many self help books, gone to therapy and been on anti-depressants off and on for 20 some years. I am grateful to all those who have tried to help me, BUT this book is really the best thing I have ever read!!! LOVE IT!!! I am about to listen to it again!

excellent book on the brain everyday

I've studied neuroscience and this suits in well, covering more around 3 hormones which affect us or improve our state of mind.

I think most people will get vendors from this book around why we can be acting logically one second then be full of anxiety, stress and overwhelm as it takes about belief systems and habits which we all have and take over in the moment and how to change or reset these.

a good read and recommended for those looking for self improvement, neuroscience and coaching alike
