- Health & Healing, Personal Transformation
Use your body to improve your mind
The human body is not just a passive device carrying out messages sent by the brain, but rather an integral part of how we think. In her groundbreaking new book, Sian Beilock draws on her own cutting-edge research to turn the conventional understanding of the mind upside down in ways that will revolutionize how we live our lives.
At the heart of How the Body Knows Its Mind is the idea that our bodies "hack" our brains. The way we move affects our thoughts, our decisions, and even our preferences for particular products. From the tricks used by advertisers to the ways body language can improve memory, Sian explains a wealth of interconnections between mind and body and how mastering them can make us happier, safer, and more successful.
"Whatever we-babies, kids, adults, athletes, actors, CEOs, and you-do from the neck down has a striking impact on what goes on from the neck up. From our brain's standpoint, there isn't much of a line between the physical and the mental. This book explains how we can take advantage of that permeable line and improve our mind by using our body."-from How the Body Knows Its Mind
