I know. 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. (No brain injury required.)
I’ll tell you, in plain English backed up 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. Michael Merzenich, world authority on brain plasticity and author of SoftWired: 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. Sarah McKay, neuroscientist, writer, and founder of Your Brain Health.
