The New York Times bestseller by acclaimed neuroscientist and multibook bestelling author Rick Hanson is now in paperback!
Life isn't easy, and having a brain wired to take in the bad and ignore the good makes us worried, irritated, and stressed, instead of confident, secure, and happy. Each day is filled with opportunities to build inner strengths, but the brain is designed to ignore and waste them. This makes you come down harder on yourself than you do on other people, feel inadequate even when you get a hundred things done, and feel lonely even when support is all around you. Dr. Rick Hanson, an acclaimed neuropsychologist and internationally bestselling author, shows us what we can do to override the brain's default programming. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures that attract happiness, love, confidence, and peace.
