The mindfulness mindset, mindfulness as a path to recovery, and mindfulness as a path to self-discovery
— Dr. Linda Miles
UNITED STATES, Aug. 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Linda Miles, psychotherapist and award-winning author, has received a positive review for her book, Change Your Story, Change Your Brain from the University of Texas in The Journal of Applied Rehabilitation.
According to the review in The Journal of Applied Rehabilitation:
Professionals interested in learning mindfulness and ways to practice it in their lives or with the people they serve may find the Change Your Story, Change Your Brain book valuable. Collectively, the book is made up of four mindfulness-related sections: mindfulness as a survival strategy, the mindfulness mindset, mindfulness as a path to healing, and mindfulness as a path to self-discovery. In each section there are three to four chapters. Each chapter covers a different concept related to mindfulness and is covered in a specific format that includes an illustration of the NOW approach (i.e. section called Practice. Such a format makes the content easy to follow and apply. The book is relatively brief; therefore, the content covered in this review consists of one chapter from each section to help illustrate some of the concepts discussed and to encourage professionals to consider learning more about mindfulness.”
Change Your Story Change Your Brain fuses powerful antidotes with neuroscientific findings and practical recommendations for practicing mindfulness. According to Dr. Miles, “As people focus more on mindfulness, they can literally change their brain structure. Citing research by Susan Lazar of Harvard, Miles describes the shrinking of responsive centers in the brain and the increase in volume of brain centers for learning and self-awareness. The author describes brief, regular practices to increase the ability to pause and respond from a calmer perspective. Change Your Story, Change Your Brain is a user manual for increased inner peace and better relationships. Mindfulness practices can lead to increased differentiation and the ability to remain calm during conflict. These practices can increase the ability to live by choice.
