Change Your Brain Every Day: Simple Daily Practices to Strengthen Your Mind, Memory, Moods, Focus, Energy, Habits, and Relationships by Daniel G. Amen, MD is a helpful resource for life. These pinpoint questions help you pay attention to the daily state of your brain. Like the check engine light on your car, these 366 practices keep your brain functioning at high efficiency. Page by page, the book offers readers a daily dose of brain wisdom, based on 40 years of experience.
Dr. Daniel Amen spices his book with humor, authority, wisdom, and gentleness. He speaks to the reader as he would speak to a family member. He desires healthy living and longevity for everyone, and breaks down his brain habits into 366 tiny steps. In this activity-oriented book, each step leads towards the desired goal of the reader.
Knowing our brains can digest small habits, I especially enjoyed how the author does not complicate the process of brain healing. He is kind and patient with his words, not judging or shaming readers for their faults and failures. If this eventually becomes an audiobook, I would listen to it daily as I prepare for my day!
“Change Your Brain Every Day” by Dr. Daniel Amen is brilliantly written with compassion for the reader. Yet, he does not enable bad behavior or make excuses like a codependent mother. Doc Amen desires change in his readers. He wisely shows them how to get from where they are today, to where they want to be in the future. Step by step, and easily digestible!
