Publisher Comments:

How to rewire your brain to improve virtually every aspect of your life-based on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology on neuroplasticity and evidence-based practices

Not long ago, it was thought that the brain you were born with was the brain you would die with, and that the brain cells you had at birth were the most you would ever possess. Your brain was thought to be “hardwired” to function in predetermined ways. It turns out that's not true. Your brain is not hardwired, it's "softwired" by experience. This book shows you how you can rewire parts of the brain to feel more positive about your life, remain calm during stressful times, and improve your social relationships. Written by a leader in the field of Brain-Based Therapy, it teaches you how to activate the parts of your brain that have been underactivated and calm down those areas that have been hyperactivated so that you feel positive about your life and remain calm during stressful times. You will also learn to improve your memory, boost your mood, have better relationships, and get a good night sleep.

  • Reveals how cutting-edge developments in neuroscience, and evidence-based practices can be used to improve your everyday life
  • Other titles by Dr. Arden include: Brain-Based Therapy-Adult, Brain-Based Therapy-Child, Improving Your Memory For Dummies and Heal Your Anxiety Workbook
  • Dr. Arden is a leader in integrating the new developments in neuroscience with psychotherapy and Director of Training in Mental Health for Kaiser Permanente for the Northern California Region

Explaining exciting new developments in neuroscience and their applications to daily living, Rewire Your Brain will guide you through the process of changing your brain so you can change your life and be free of self-imposed limitations.

Synopsis:

If you want to change your life, you need to change your brain.

"Dr. Arden paved the way for brain-based therapy and what the brain can do. It's refreshing, practical, and innovative." —Kit S. Ng, Ph.D., Director, Asia Institute of Professional Psychology, Singapore

"Rewire Your Brain translates fascinating developments in neuroscience into a powerful and practical guide to lasting change in our lives." —Liz Sheean, Editor, Psychotherapy in Australia

Once thought to be "hard-wired," the brain is actually "soft-wired" by experience—meaning it is possible to rewire parts of your brain to improve everything from your mood and your memory to your relationships, sleeping habits, and more. Rewire Your Brain guides you through this breakthrough process, revealing how to minimize your anxiety and enhance your brain's longevity in order to live a vibrant life free of self-imposed limitations. Written by Dr. John Arden, a leader in the field of brain-based therapy, this accessible guide addresses the recent advances in neuroscience and explains exactly how to apply them to specific areas of your daily life. You'll discover how to:

  • Develop mental connections that promote good habits and shut off those that support bad habits

  • Quiet your brain, conquer fear, and approach life courageously

  • Become calm, energized, and focused by making new connections between your neurons

  • Improve and expand your relationships
