Summary/Review: We all feel it sometimes-all of us, we really do. Tired, hopeless, stretched too thin, a little scared about the future, a sense that something important is missing. Modern life is unbelievably stressful, and it comes at us from all sides. But there's also an upside to the modern world: in our age of better information, technology, nutrition, and healthcare, we're using our smarts to develop a science that can help us feel happier and more connected to our lives-and it really does work. In Thriving Mind, Dr. Jenny Brockis draws on deep research and 30+ years of helping people solve persistent and serious problems to provide science-based strategies for overcoming them-as well as the habits to help avoid them in the future. Walking you through common issues such as loneliness, stress, relationship breakdown, loss of social connection, and mental health issues, Dr. Brockis shows that there are practical ways to alleviate or even banish these difficulties-and to reclaim a sense of meaning and vitality you might not have felt in years. Discover how happiness works and how to engage your full spectrum of emotions and mindfulness to achieve it. Harness your natural biology (it's worked for thousands of years!) for better energy, resilience, and mood. Connect with your superpower of social and enrich your relationships with compassion, respect, and courage. Take full control of your life by giving up on counterproductive short-term solutions and the blame game. Whatever your worries, it's important to remember you're not alone, and that by using the tools and strategies outlined here, you can take real scientific steps toward reclaiming your humanity-and start doing the things today that will bring a brighter tomorrow.
