by Brad Pendergraft
Stress, worry, and anxiety are pervasive in today’s high-pressure culture. Many of us know the feelings of tension, the rushing thoughts, the sleepless nights, the inefficient work hours, burnout, frustration, ever deepening overwhelm, and constant pressure. And many of us know how these issues become totally out of control!
Fret no more—The Un-Worried Brain provides you with practical and playful solutions!
Using the best elements of contemporary neuroscience presented with the precision of a philosopher and the zany humor of a stand-up comedian, Brad Pendergraft (a.k.a. Brain Coach Brad) demonstrates that stress, worry, and anxiety are actually habits that we can easily break. What’s more, he provides the way to replace these habits with tools for great achievement.
The Un-Worried Brain teaches the simple, enjoyable four-step FIRE! Process, based on practical brain science and enhanced by Brain Coach Brad’s years of working with clients with issues ranging from anxiety to bad relationships to business issues to post-traumatic stress.
Open the pages of this groundbreaking book, and you will learn the secret power of skipping; the stress-busting force of the Thought Cavalry; how taking off your shoes can triple your productivity; how to identify and alter the metaphors and language that unconsciously run your life; the truth about your habits of stress, worry, and anxiety; and how playfulness, celebration, and more celebration are actually the key to your success and the worry-free achievement you’ve always wanted.
