    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Modern times are stressful--and it's killing us. Unfortunately, we can't avoid the things that stress us out, but we can change how we respond to them. In this breakthrough book, a clinical psychologist and neuroscience expert offers an original approach to help readers harness the power of positive emotions and overcome stress for good. Stress is, unfortunately, a natural part of life--especially in our busy and hectic modern times. But you don't have to let it get in the way of your health and happiness. Studies show that the key to coping with stress is simpler than you think--it's all about how you respond to the situations and things that stress you out or threaten to overwhelm you. The Stress-Proof Brain offers powerful, comprehensive tools based in mindfulness, neuroscience, and positive psychology to help you put a stop to unhealthy responses to stress--such as avoidance, tunnel vision, negative thinking, self-criticism, fixed mindset, and fear. Instead, you'll discover unique exercises that provide a recipe for resilience, empowering you to master your emotional responses, overcome negative thinking, and create a more tolerant, stress-proof brain. This book will help you develop an original and effective program for mastering your emotional brain's response to stress by harnessing the power of neuroplasticity. By creating a more stress tolerant, resilient brain, you'll learn to shrug off the small stuff, deal with the big stuff, and live a happier, healthier life"-- Provided by publisher.

Reviews

LJ Reviews 2017 February #1

Licensed clinical psychologist and PhD Greenberg provides a comprehensive examination of stress and mindfulness, paying special attention to the brain's anatomy and its relationship with the body's physical responses to stress. This text is divided into three sections. The first, "Understanding Your Stress," lays the groundwork of neural physiology and how the brain reacts biologically to high-tension situations, commonly referred to as "fight or flight." The second section, "Calming Your Amygdala," delves deeper into specific tips and techniques for staying calm despite the body's overwhelming physical impulses. The final section, "Moving Forward with Your Prefrontal Cortex," offers suggestions on how to combat worry, guilt, and perfectionism. Embedded within the chapters are helpful practice activities, including meditation prompts, breathing exercises, checklists, and sample daily logs. VERDICT Greenberg's objective, science-based approach presents information in an unbiased way, avoiding the stigma that many associate with mental health and emotional well-being. Equally informative as a useful self-help guide, this title is highly recommended for mental health professionals and consumer health readers looking to manage stress.—Carolann Curry, Mercer Univ. Lib., Macon, GA
