Stopping the constant "chatter" of the mind — is it possible in today's world? People have so much to juggle, schedule, discuss, and think about, how can they slow it all down? Won't they miss out? In fact, John Selby points out that our nation's thinkaholic ways result in such detrimental effects as high stress, insomnia, anxiety attacks, and negative, self-critical attitudes. In Quiet Your Mind, he offers an easy-to-follow mind-management process to help people let go of stressful mental habits and enter a more heart-centered, intuitive, and peaceful engagement with everyday life. Based on solid scientific research yet presented in a very approachable tone, the techniques here allow people to quiet over-busy thoughts and prevent fear-based emotions so that they can be truly refreshed, spontaneous, and engaged with each new moment.
