I recently read a book that I found immensely helpful for dealing
with the ongoing stress of living in today's world. The book is titled,
"Just ONE Thing: developing a Buddha brain one simple practice at a
time." The author is Rick Hanson, Ph.D.
Here is the link to Dr. Hanson's website/book www.rickhanson.net/books/just-one-thing/.
What I found most appealing about the book is that the author breaks down over fifty helpful
brain-training practices into short, interesting and doable exercises.
The author, a neuropsychologist, explains very simply how our thinking
affects our brains. I've read many general self-help books, but found
this one to be one of the best.
