"A new epidemic is sweeping the country. Some people call it "ADHD," "scatter brain," or "brain fog." And some people simply say they "just don't feel like themselves"--and haven't for a long time. People are thinking and feeling worse than ever. Why? Because our brains are not getting the support they need to produce the essential brain chemicals that keep us energized, calm, focused, and inspired. In fact, if you look at the way that most of us live, it's almost as though we had chosen a lifestyle deliberately intended to undermine our brain chemistry. Fortunately, there is a solution. The Brain Fog Fix is a three-week program designed to help you naturally restore three of your brain's most crucial chemicals: serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol. Rebalancing these three brain chemicals will, in turn, enable the rest of your brain's chemistry to reach optimal levels. You will find yourself thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly, and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. You will also find yourself feeling more optimistic, calm, energized, connected, and inspired. The good news is that this is easier than you think. Instead of trying to ambitiously overhaul one aspect of your life entirely with some difficult-to-maintain resolution, begin by making small and achievable changes in many different areas of your life. "If I've learned one thing from the thousands of people I've treated, it's that you have to take the whole person into account if you want to think and feel better." --Dr. Mike Dow"--

Simple and fun mindfulness activities to do with children up to age 11 to build beneficial lifelong skills that promote resilience, joy, focus and calm, and improve overall wellbeing. Helping children to be more mindful is a powerful gift. By being mindful they will learn to recognise and manage their emotions, be more able to calm down when they are upset, become better at focusing on important tasks, and be more able to interact with others with empathy and generosity. These are fundamental skills that children will need throughout their life, but that they often aren't taught explicitly. Think of how often we demand that children “pay attention” or “calm down”, without ever having shown them how to do so. Now parents can, with help from mindfulness expert Sarah Rudell Beach. Parents first learn how to be more mindful themselves before teaching their children basic mindfulness skills. With easy-to-follow activities, chapter by chapter children learn to Soothe, Focus, Feel, Pause, Appreciate and Connect. Each activity includes variations for different age groups, along with "emergency" how-tos for particularly stressful moments.

From learning how to jump obstacles on horseback in the Modern Pentathlon to competing in triathlons in France, this is an action-packed autobiography of a young South African athlete sharing her dream of becoming a world champion. A dream which seemed impossible during the sports boycott against apartheid. Dr Sibis Mouton speaks to us from the heart as she ranges from her childhood, her family, to her travels around the world and her internal journeys, heart-aches and victories. Life experiences, like swimming with the dolphins in the Miami Keys or photographing the famous Masai Mara migration in Kenya, are given deeper spiritual significance and take us on a mystical journey to discover the meaning and purpose of life. This is an uplifting and inspiring story that should convince the reader that life is indeed a miracle to be enjoyed and treasured.

“This Is Your Brain on Joy is a thoughtful, practical, life-changing book that will help you take advantage of the latest neuroscience research—combined with biblical insights—to bring more joy and love into your life.” —from the Foreword by Daniel G. Amen, MD Author and speaker for the PBS special Change Your Brain, Change Your Life What does your brain have to do with experiencing joy? A lot more than most of us realize. In this breakthrough book, Dr. Earl Henslin reveals how the study of brain imaging turned his practice of psychotherapy upside down—with remarkably positive results. He shares answers to puzzling questions, such as Why isn’t my faith in God enough to erase my blue moods? Why haven’t I been able to conquer my anger? Pray away my fear and worry? Why can’t I find freedom from secret obsessions and addictions? Using the Brain System Checklist, Dr. Henslin explains what happens to the 5 Mood Centers in the brain when any of those areas are out of balance. This is great news, especially for those tortured by the fear that something is fundamentally wrong with them when the problem actually lies between their ears. Read this practical, easy-to-understand, and often entertaining book, and you’ll know exactly how to nourish your mind, balance your brain, and help others do the same. After all, the capacity for joy is a terrible thing to waste.

This book is a transcription of a 12-tape series entitled "The Joy of Creating" recorded in 1995. It was imperative that I remain faithful to the recording. Therefore, words, word connotation, subject matter and general principles of writing DO NOT APPLY. I am the first to admit this is difficult reading; especially if you are quick to be emotional and slow to be thoughtful. It's not everyday that you are asked to listen through words. In this book that is what's required. The words were spoken from the subconscious; true spirituality cannot separate—it is a part of everything. This book gives you a look at how being separate in consciousness does not separate you in spirit. It seeks to jerk you around and disallow you to assume understanding. It's senseless unless you're ready to be something more than what you presently are. Its purpose is to bring to the surface the pain that is entrenched in the structural process of constant change. You are not here to save the world. You are here, complete in your individuality, to work with other complete individuals to complete another whole. You don't have to wait until you die—to know.

This is a Summary of Dr. Mike Dow's The Brain Fog Fix: Reclaim Your Focus, Memory, and Joy in Just 3 Weeks Is stress preventing you from enjoying your daily life? Do you find that you're becoming more distracted or forgetful? Are "the blues" sapping your spirits? Or do you simply feel not quite like yourself? If you want to reclaim your focus, memory, and joy, you're not alone. There are millions of people fighting against the epidemic of brain fog that's sweeping the nation. The good news: It's not an irreparable condition; rather it's a side effect of modern-day living. Many of the foods we eat and the habits we have do not support our brains. We no longer get what we need in order to produce essential brain chemicals that keep us energized, calm, focused, optimistic, and inspired. And even worse, our choices could lead to long-term problems, like dementia, Alzheimer's disease, depression, and anxiety. Sadly, if you look at the way most of us live, it seems almost as though we've chosen a lifestyle deliberately intended to undermine our brain chemistry and our health. Fortunately, there is a solution. The Brain Fog Fix is an easy-to-follow three-week program designed to help naturally restore three of your brain's most crucial hormones: serotonin, dopamine, and cortisol. Rebalancing these chemicals will in turn enable the rest of your brain's chemistry to reach optimal levels. Each week of the program focuses on a different element of your life: In week 1, you'll improve your mood by modifying your diet and using cognitive strategies to overcome pitfall thought patterns. In week 2, you'll increase your energy by focusing on sleep, exercise, and memory-boosting games. In week 3, you'll enhance your spirit through practices that help you connect to something larger than yourself and enable you to rediscover your joy in life. By the end of this simple program, you'll be thinking more clearly, remembering more accurately, learning more quickly, and unleashing the floodgates of your creativity. And you'll simply feel better-for now and in the long term. Available in a variety of formats, this summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour all 304 pages. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer. This summary is not intended to be used without reference to the original book.

Discover the Transformative Effects of Being Kind to Yourself “This brilliant book offers us both the science and practice of how self-kindness is the secret sauce of fulfillment, transformation, and joy.” —Lorin Roche, meditation teacher and author of The Radiance Sutras Many of us yearn to feel a greater sense of inner calm, ease, joy, and purpose. We have tried meditation and found it too difficult. We judge ourselves for being no good at emptying our minds (as if one ever could) or compare ourselves with yogis who seem to have it all together. We live in a steady state of “not good enough.” It does not have to be this way. In Good Morning, I Love You, Dr. Shauna Shapiro brings alive the brain science behind why we feel the way we do—about ourselves, each other, and the world—and explains why we get stuck in thinking that doesn’t serve us. It turns out that we are hardwired to be self-critical and negative! And this negativity is constantly undermining our experience of life. “It is never too late to rewire your brain for positivity—for calm, clarity, and joy,” writes Dr. Shapiro. “I know this is possible because I experienced it. Best of all, you can begin wherever you are.” In short, lively chapters laced with science, wisdom, and story, Shapiro, one of the leading scientists studying the effects of mindfulness on the brain, shows us that acting with kindness and compassion toward ourselves is the key. With her roadmap to guide you, including her signature “Good Morning, I Love You” practice, in which you deliberately greet yourself each day with these simple words, you can change your brain’s circuitry and steady yourself in feelings of deep calm, clarity, and joy. For good.
