The Open-focus Brain PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Open-focus Brain free pdf In this breakthrough health book, Dr. Les Fehmi - a pioneering researcher and clinician - teams up with an award-winning science writer to present a disarmingly simple idea: the way we pay attention in daily life plays a critical role in our health and well-being. Through decades of clinical practice and research, Dr. Fehmi has found that different forms of attention affect the brain's electrical activity, which in turn has a profound impact on our mental and physical health. Too many of us are stuck in an emergency, fight-or-flight mode of attention: a tense, narrow survival mode in which we focus only on avoiding danger and calamity, to the exclusion of all else.Many of us have simply lost access to a more relaxed, diffuse, and creative form of attention, which Dr. Fehmi calls 'Open Focus'. This highly readable and empowering book offers straightforward explanations and simple exercises on how to shift away from narrow-focus attention to a calmer, more open style of attention that reduces stress, improves health, and enhances performance. The book features seven essential attention exercises for improving health, along with an audio CD in which the author guides the reader through the two most important and effective exercises.
