Using positive neuroplasticity to change your brain, and your life
Our thoughts can change the structure of our brains.
Everything you do creates connections within the network of your brain, and the more you repeat something, the stronger that connection gets. These connections control our reactions, emotions, behaviors, and our overall well-being.
By learning to strengthen the positive connections, you can change your brain to be more positive.
In the Foundations of Well-Being, Rick Hanson uses science-based practices to help you re-wire your brain, changing the way you react, feel, and behave. These practices will give you lasting results in happiness, resilience, peace, and inner strength.
