    If like me, you are interested in neural plasticity, limbic training and mindfulness this is a must listen. I have only just discovered Rick Hanson's work and on the basis of this audio book have pre ordered his next book from Audible. What I found unique about this book is the very helpful explanations regarding neural plasticity and the excellent tips to help with rewiring the brain both during meditation practice and in everyday life, combined with short meditations. I have been using these methods and finding them extremely helpful. The only downside of this audio is that if you just wish to use the meditation practices you cannot access them seperately - each one comes with a commentary. However, this is a small criticism as it's an excellent, easily accessible listen.

    The structure of your brain changes constantly, in a dynamic, unfolding process that you yourself can direct to create the life you want. This is the exciting premise of Meditations to Change Your Brain, a breakthrough program from psychologist Rick Hanso, Ph.D. and neurologist Rick Mendius, M.D.

    If you are interested in mindfulness or the work of Tara Brach I would definitely have a listen to this excellent, accessible book. Before listening to this I struggled to fully grasp the concept of compassion but the authors set it out so clearly here, with lots of examples and exercises that it has really helped me to understand the concept, and in the process myself and my thought patterns. Learning more about compassion has definitely been life changing for me and I would highly recommend this book as part of that journey.

    This is a fantastic book either for those new to the concept of neuroplasticity or for those looking to deepen their understanding and practice. Learning to change my brain and embrace joy has changed my life over the past year and this is definitely a book that I would recommend to anyone suffering from anxiety or chronic pain. I am hoping that in time the mainstream medical profession here in the UK will take these ideas onboard and make them accessible to everyone. Rick Hanson is an amazing man and the best reader of his work. Highly recommended.

    Why is it easier to ruminate over hurt feelings than it is to bask in the warmth of being appreciated? Because your brain evolved to learn quickly from bad experiences but slowly from the good ones. You can change this. Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. Dr. Hanson's four steps build strengths into your brain, balancing its ancient negativity bias, making contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal.

    Life can be relentless, frantic and exhausting - but it doesn't have to be this way. This is an introduction to Mindfulness, which reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression.

Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new forward and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant.
