    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.

    Story
    Would you listen to Rewire Your Brain again? Why?

    Oh yes. There is a ton of information and it's hard to get it all in one listen. He tells you exactly what to do to rewire your brain for depression, panic attacks, memory problems and much more. He teaches you how your brain works and WHY. He tells you what you are doing wrong and how to correct your "disorder" or "disability" all without medicine. I'm so excited about this book I'm getting copies for others. It's a must read for people who really want to change. You do have to DO the work but it's easy. I've already started doing some and it's working. I see where I've created my own situations and what I can do to correct them and live a much happier healthier lifestyle. I've had panic attacks so bad I had a service dog for them and depression so bad I've visited the hospital on several occasions. I don't see that being the case anymore in my life. I've worked hard over the years to get past all these things and this book as finally put all the pieces of the puzzle together for me. I've listened to this audible version and will be getting the hard copy to further concrete the principles into my life. I hope you to can Rewire Your Brain ...
    ENJOY~!~


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way he explained things is so understandable. He covers problems I'm having such as depression, panic attacks, and memory. I can problem solves my own problems and don't have to be on medicine. Something they don't tell you in a mental health facility is that you CAN get over a mental illness but most people don't want to do the work involved in order to get WELL. It's a process that takes a long time but Mr Arden makes it so much easier.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    About depression and panic attacks because I can relate so well to these conditions.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Oh so much. I've not even scratched the surface of all this book has to offer. I will be listening to it for a while to extract all the info it has in it.


    Any additional comments?

    I want to read more books by John Arden.
