Human brains are hardwired for worry. While our ancient ancestors had a legitimate use for the fight-or-flight instinct, what was once a matter of survival has now become the stuff of sleepless nights and anxious days. At its best worry provides a way for us to turn over and solve a problem in our minds, but for many it becomes a negative cycle of unnecessary suffering. Based on cutting-edge brain science, Dr. Martin Rossman has developed a program to help break the worry cycle — and transform worry into a positive force. With an easy-to-follow plan for taking control of reactions to stress and anxiety,
Using proven clinical techniques that harness the very power of imagination that creates worry and stress, THE HEALING MIND reveals the five basic skills that will help clarify worries, sort them into those we can and can’t do something about, and tap the wisdom buried deep within to help solve problems creatively.
At the heart of the program is the use of guided imagery and creative visualization, techniques that invigorate the emotional and intuitive parts of the brain to add to and enhance logical intelligence.
Not only can these techniques create a change in stress levels immediately, but with regular practice they may literally alter the worry pathways in the brain — and “hardwire” our brains for calmness and clarity. Grounded in cutting-edge science and wonderfully accessible, THE HEALING MIND WITH MARTIN ROSSMAN, M.D. is a powerful and practical guide to living our best lives — healthier, happier and free from unnecessary stress.
