Switch On Your Brain For 2015
Happy New Year!
Have you set some goals for yourself for 2015. Would you consider adding Switch on Your Brain to your must read list?
Feed your mind on good ideas just like you expect your children to.
Caroline Leaf, the author of this book, explains how we can look after our brains and make them grow, stretch and change. I’m loving how she is encouraging me to expect more from myself.
Switch on your Brain has been around for two years now.
It is a book that requires thoughtful contemplation and I’m still working through the chapters and making notes.
Here’s the book blurb.
“According to researchers, the vast majority–a whopping 75-98 percent–of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about truly affects us both physically and emotionally. In fact, fear alone triggers more than 1,400 known physical and chemical responses in our bodies, activating more than thirty different hormones! Today our culture is undergoing an epidemic of toxic thoughts that, left unchecked, create ideal conditions for illnesses. Supported by current scientific and medical research, Dr. Caroline Leaf gives readers a prescription for better health and wholeness through correct thinking patterns, declaring that we are not victims of our biology. She shares with readers the “switch” in our brains that enables us to live happier, healthier, more enjoyable lives where we achieve our goals, maintain our weight, and even become more intelligent. She shows us how to choose life, get our minds under control, and reap the benefits of a detoxed thought life.”
This book is motivating me to be more diligent in the things I think about and the ideas I allow to take route. She gives practical advice for training your brain.
The author is a Christian and she shares Christian scripture along with many of the research findings she presents.
A very good mother culture read.
I’ll be following her 21 Brain Detox this year – and it has nothing to do with food.
This is a book for me but I can see how my children will benefit because it will help me be a better teacher. Teenagers may also find this book interesting.
