What is the book about?

Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence is about the hidden power of everyday positive experiences to change your brain for the better. Recent scientific breakthroughs have shown that we can deliberately improve brain structure, a process known as self-directed neuroplasticity. Whatever we repeatedly sense, feel, and believe makes real changes in our neural networks. In my book, you’ll learn a simple, 4-step program that blends neuroscience and practical psychology to rewire the brain, using the HEAL steps – Have, Enrich, Absorb, and Link – to grow greater well-being, relaxation, mindfulness, emotional balance, and feeling appreciated in your brain and your life.

You’ll learn:

The HEAL Method, which gets “the good” to stick!

Why even on the worst days, there are many micro-moments that can tilt the brain toward the positive, and how to absorb them.

Why positive thinking is generally wasted on the brain.

How to strengthen your relationships, appreciating and internalizing what is good in them.
