Stress relief that works from the New York Times bestselling author of The ADD Answer and the chief content advisor for the Dr. Phil show

With his bestselling books, Frank Lawlis has brought psychological relief to millions. In his latest book, he addresses one of the most common challenges of everyday life - dealing with stress and anxiety.

In Retraining the Brain, Dr. Lawlis clearly explains the neurological factors that make stress so traumatizing and lays out a powerful plan for changing our brains to improve the way we cope. The secret is to take advantage of our brain plasticity, our ability to essentially reprogram the way we think simply by following this forty-five-day program to change our behavior. Drawing on his work at his renowned clinic, Dr. Lawlis takes us through the different types of stressors and shows how we can apply the principles of brain plasticity to hardwire new, healthier response patterns. With its simple but effective exercises, Retraining the Brain offers an exciting new method for reducing stress and increasing our overall happiness.

Review:

"In a deceptively simple style, author and psychologist Lawlis (Mending the Broken Bond, The ADD Answer, etc.), best known as a consultant on TV's Dr. Phil, offers a sophisticated overview of the latest neurological research, and how it can be integrated with cognitive therapy to treat mental and emotional disorders in ways 'light-years ahead of current methods.' Key is the discovery of 'brain plasticity,' the organ's 'amazing capacity for creating backup systems that can renew lost functions'; as such, the brain can be re-wired for better functioning through exercises (imaging, breathing, 'thought-stopping techniques') and lifestyle changes (setting aside 30 minutes a day to relax). Lawlis maintains a useful focus on reigning in what he calls 'stress storms,' when overloaded brain circuits lose their capacity for 'logic and rational thinking,' leaving one 'stuck in a mental ditch, with the engine revving and wheels spinning, but no forward movement.' Including several useful tools for self-diagnosis, in-depth looks at various kinds of 'storms,' and a 45-day program to apply his method, this guide to de-stressing will help those willing to put some effort into mental healing."
