Publisher's Summary

Learn the scientific benefits of positivism!

Sometimes it's easiest to look for the worst in every situation - our brains have evolved to scan for problems in order to help avoid them. But you can transcend this natural negativity - if you know how.

The Science of Positivity teaches you how cynical thought habits are formed and how you can rewire yourself to go beyond them. Neurochemical expert Loretta Graziano Breuning, PhD, empowers you to transcend negativity by creating new thought habits. You'll learn simple, practical actions you can take to shift your thinking to a way that causes your brain to reward optimism with the release of happy chemicals. You can even permanently replace cynical thought patterns with realistic and optimistic thoughts.

In just minutes a day for six weeks, you will build new pathways to see the world in new ways. Frustration is an inevitable part of life, but rather than using cynicism to manage frustration, you can rewire your brain to get beyond it.

Chemical Basis for Common Behaviors and How to Change

This book details why certain behaviors, that are not optimal in modern life, occur. These behaviors cause a chemical response that can sooth in the short run but can cause problems in the long run. The book shows how the release of positive brain chemicals can be triggered by optimal behaviors through a retraining process.

Dreadful. Read by a robot and is hard to follow

Struggled to get past first chapter. Sounds like it's read by a robot. Not at all easy to follow
