A strong memory and a healthy brain aren't as difficult to maintain as one might think, assure psychiatrist Henry Emmons and psychologist David Alter, who here provide a drug-free program to live more joyfully, age more gracefully, and build intimacy in your relationships, regardless of your age. They combine clinical neuroscience with timeless wisdom about mental flexibility, mindfulness, and stress reduction to offer nine key practices for maintaining a youthful mind and a happy life.
"[The authors] focus on how to train one's mind with the aim of living a healthy, relaxed, and engaged life. They explain the neuroscience and holistic medicine upon which they base their advice, and they aren't dogmatic. What they suggest requires a certain amount of discipline but few dollars. Their suggestions are reasonable goals at any age: Get enough sleep and exercise and nurture your curiosity about the world."—Boston Globe
