Who Switched Off My Brain?
Author: Dr. Caroline Leaf
This is a very easy read and very powerful. Everyone should take a little bit a time (because it’s not a big book) and read it. It gives easy to understand explanations and illustrations of how the mind and emotions sends messages to the brain. Also the practical activities to reinforce concepts can be applied on a daily basis and does not take up a lot of time.
Dr. Leaf states that researchers say that 87% of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. Once you read what she has to say on how your brain works and what happens to your body when we think negative thoughts, you can’t wait to get to the last chapter and learn the steps to controlling your thinking.
I feel like Leaf offers a lot of solid ideas for learning how to change thoughts and control unhealthy emotions. Even if you don’t think you struggle with anxiety, ADHD, depression, etc., there isn’t anybody who couldn’t benefit from reading this book.
