The key to overcoming depression and anxiety and stop living a fear-based existence is in your head. Literally. By taking control of your mind and thoughts and adopting brain-healthy habits, you can harness the superpower we were all born with, neuroplasticity - your brain's ability to change itself, optimize operation, reverse negative thinking patterns, and actually alter its chemical balance and physical form and function, so that happy and healthy become the default. Change your brain. Change your life. I did it. But only after a decade of depression ending in a suicide attempt that left me with a seriously compromised brain. In healing my brain, I healed my life. You can do it too. I'll tell you in plain English backed by science how you can improve your brain and life through simple practices: - diet and exercise - mindfulness and meditation - responding rather than reacting - gratitude and forgiveness - making friends with fear - visualization, thought reframing, and more. "This book is a wonderful source of insight and understanding from someone who knows firsthand the transformative powers of the brain's plasticity." Dr. Micheal Merzenich, world authority on brain plasticity and author of Soft-Wired: How The New Science Of Brain Plasticity Can Change Your Life "Debbie Hampton gives a behind the scenes look at the workings of the mind and brain and draws from some of the leading scientists and teachers of our time. But more than that, she weaves her own powerful story of recovery from brain injury into each chapter. She provides a refreshing and personal look into mindfulness, neuroplasticity and recovery from someone who has travelled the journey. A remarkable book that is beautifully written, compassionate and wise." Dr. Sara McKay, neuroscientist, writer and founder of Your Brain Health

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.

You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be glad as hell it's not you. On the outside, Debbie Hampton appeared to have everything going for her but felt empty and inadequate on the inside. After taking care of her brother as he wasted away and died of AIDs, the end of her marriage to her high school sweetheart in a Divorce Court-ugly split, years of wrong turns, things not working out, and being flat-out disappointed with life, she swallowed handful after handful of pills. The drugs went all of the way through her system wreaking destruction before she was found. After a week in a coma, Debbie woke up to a very different world with a serious brain injury. Her ex-husband sued her for custody of their sons, won, and promptly moved out of state with them. And she thought things were bad before? This intimately honest, witty, and wise book is the story of how she got to and climbed back from that rock bottom place to not only survive but thrive. "I entered into the reading of Debbie Hampton's memoir with trepidation because I was familiar with the trauma of the storyline. After the final chapter, I closed the book feeling like I had been taken on a gut-wrenching, heroic journey by a brutally honest and at the same time generously loving soul. That such an artfully written journal and vibrant outlook could have been birthed from such pain is breathtaking."Kat Tansey, author of Choosing to Be: Lessons in Living from a Feline Zen Master "A compelling story of one woman's journey, like a Phoenix, put through the fire and beautifully transformed!" Carmen "A true story of triumph over mental illness and depression, Debbie bares her soul and shares all the dirty details. What appears to be a charmed life that most people would envy was, in reality, a driving force to an almost fatal suicide attempt. Debbie recovers from this life-changing low and shares her wisdom, strength, and hope with us." Angie

Why is it easier to ruminate over hurt feelings than it is to bask in the warmth of being appreciated? Because your brain evolved to learn quickly from bad experiences but slowly from good ones. You can change this. 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. But each day is filled with opportunities to build inner strengths and Dr. Rick Hanson, an acclaimed clinical psychologist, shows what you can do to override the brain’s default pessimism. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. You’ll learn to see through the lies your brain tells you. Dr. Hanson’s four steps build strengths into your brain—counterbalancing its ancient negativity bias—making contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal. In mere minutes each day, you can transform your brain into a refuge and power center of calm and happiness. You can hardwire in happiness.

Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research. In the book, you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison, the cortex is the center of “worry.” That is, obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen. In the book, Pittman and Karle make it simple by offering specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping into both of these pathways in the brain. As you read, you’ll gain a greater understanding how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result, you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it. The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally “rewire” the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.
