This book is uplifting and got me thinking of different ways to stay positive and keep my mental health in a good state. I lead a very busy life looking after my son and working a hectic, stressful full time job. Plus I’m up early in the morning to get to the gym because exercise keeps me going and is one of my motivators. Sometimes we lose focus and the stress gets on top of us and we start to get run down and don’t even realize it. It takes a book like this to make us realize we have to take care of our mental health as well as our physical health. I spend so much time weight lifting and focusing on becoming stronger than I neglect my mind and that’s just as important if not more. Mental health requires inner strength to deal with all the challenges that life throws at you. It requires training just like that physical body needs training. This book gives you information on mental strength and how to achieve it and how to train yourself to keep it. One aspect it discusses is being more positive. Things that help with this are laughter, smiling, thinking positive thoughts, socializing with positive people, having good friends, taking care of yourself and your family and relaxing. It talks about the benefits of having positive thoughts. Each person requires different avenues and methods to finding that positive state of mind and mental strength. This book shares some ideas that might be for you such as meditation, prayer and exercise. It’s a short read and sometimes that’s all you need to get you back on that positive path toward good mental health. I received this book for free.
I picked up the kindle edition of Train Your Brain & Mental Strength : How to Train Your Brain for Mental Toughness & 7 Core Lessons to Achieve Peak Mental Performance: (Special 2 In 1 Exclusive Edition) because it appealed to my self improvement side.
So it took me a while to get some time to sit down with this book, but I'm glad I have.
As it says, it helps you to train your brain. I see too many people with low self-esteem, low self confidence, stress, anxiety & other signs of mental weakness. It's truly a sad state of affairs. Mental training is huge to counteract that. Think it and it shall be true. The mind is a complex and wonderful resource which is so underutilized. We have to train ourselves to think positively, to shield out the bad, to develop resistance... this book will help anyone looking to do just that. Just like any other muscle, the brain needs a workout to grow... puzzles, logic problems, etc. are a great way to do just that. Another is to use the cognitive abilities building suggestions in the book. Who wouldn't want to improve or achieve "peak mental performance"? How is this not at the top of everyone's to do list?
The book isn't a difficult read, 19 chapters. The average read time is just over an hour, so why not give it a try?
Definitely worth checking out.
I did receive this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest review & unbiased opinion, but I still say check it out!
Pointless. This is the exact same book as another by the same author. I mean, word for word! They just changed the title. Here I was hoping for something different, this was just a complete waste of time. I gave the other a 1 star rating, so this will get the same because it's exactly the same as the other book. It's poorly organized, it offers up no value on the topic.
I received a digital copy of this book free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
This ebook as well as others I have read from the same author are so full of great information and so helpful for people like me. There are so many details in this book and so many ideas and ways to help yourself become mentally stronger. Everything from being a positive thinker to being prepared for the worst. It is actually helping me get through the loss of a loved one right now and I don't even think that the book was intentionally written for that reason. Regardless, it is helping me. I like the straight forward, don't feel sorry for yourself book. This ebook talks about Alzheimer's, Amnesia, and the general decline of your cognitive function. I think that there is something in this book for practically everyone. I know I don't suffer from 90% of what this book talks about but there is so much information in this book about how to avoid those bad things that sometimes (more often than not) happen when we age, I know I don't want to forget who everyone around me is. And the brain fog that I suffer now, in my 30's isn't giving me much hope of keeping my memory and ability to think clearly when I am older without a lot of work.
The opinions in this review are mine and mine alone.

It takes the first 10 chapters to really get through the basics. Once you're through the obvious, this book starts to heat up and provide useful information. It becomes more educational and attacks other areas of information regarding mental strength including how the brain processes, what the difference is in memory function as well as similarties in animal brains, the role of Alzheimer's and dementia and the effect of aging. Extra information is provided that isn't necessarily "training" or strengthening your brain, but it is useful as it explains why it is important as well as how to help prevent the worst case scenarios.
