How to train your brain to achieve more serenity
|Language of origin
We all want more peace and serenity. So why is it so hard to find both? One reason is the human brain which is equipped with a hypersensitive alarm system: the amygdala.
Our way of life contributes to the amygdala’s hypersensitivity. We aim to be perfect, we are using various media for communication and we find ourselves in a vicious circle of tension and stress. We no longer know how to relax and to recover from the challenges of our daily routine.
In a very light and entertaining way the authors explain how our brain works. This helps us to understand why achieving serenity can be so challenging.
