Publisher's Summary

Life is hard when you’re not yourself.

Why do we sometimes feel more connected in our relationships than at other times? Perhaps you sometimes find it easy and exciting to spend time with your loved ones - but sometimes, especially when things don’t according to plan, you feel incapable of connecting in conversations. You then feel distant from those you love most. What if the answer to remaining connected in relationships has been right under your nose - or, rather, right inside your head all along?

Discover the simple switch in your brain that activates - or deactivates - what you most need for relational connectivity: joy. In The Joy Switch, learn how the simple flip of this brain switch either enables you to remain present for those around you or causes you to become overwhelmed - and ultimately inhibited from being your best self - when problems arise. You’ll learn how to maximize your relational brain, how to recognize when your brain’s joy switch is flipped, and how to take steps to restore your relational sweet-spot. This book will help you love others and remain fully connected with yourself while being the best version of who you were made to be.

Excellent quick listen

A quick listen on brain activity and how joy affects it. Would highly recommend if you need a beginner guide to understanding how practicing joy can make relationships with others better.

Clearer understanding

I’ve gone through and taught “Journey Groups” and I love the 19 Brain Skills book but I love the conciseness and clarity of this little book. I now have a clearer understanding i can apply and share with others. Thank you!

Great for anyone AND practical steps to apply

Not only is this a great book with information that can help anyone, but it is backed by science (which is explained and very interesting) and will benefit the reader and everyone in that person's life. The steps are clearly laid out for easy application.

Operational training in what it means to love

When asked which of God’s commandments is the greatest, Jesus replied, “Love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength,” and “love your neighbor as yourself.” Probably because I grew up in a “good “ home that was without emotional and relational connectedness, I learned to apply that in a negative or passive way: I love others by what I don’t do, rather than what I do. This book is an operational guide to wholeness and excellence in relationship management. It, along with related works, have helped me immensely.
