Summary, etc.:
Happiness: Is It a Matter of Luck . . . or a Learnable Skill? Why do some people seem happier than others, regardless of their situation? In the face of fear, sadness, and other emotional suffering, we may believe that there's simply something wrong with us. Yet in his decades of pioneering research, Dr. Rick Hanson has revealed a simple yet profound truth: Happiness can be learned. And like any other skill, it can support us throughout our lives. Overcoming Our "Negativity Bias" Because the brain evolved to help us survive dangers and threats, teaches Hanson, negative experiences stick to our minds like Velcro, while positive ones slip away like Teflon. It's the reason why it's so hard to rest fully in our moments of contentment, and why we get pulled so easily into unhappiness. But there's hope. Ever-growing neuroscience revelations show that we can change our biological negativity bias. We can train ourselves to build a reservoir of uplifting experiences on a neurological level. We can shift the balance of our reality toward happiness. A Neuroscience-Based Program Refined by Years of Research In this complete audio program, Rick Hanson guides you through a wealth of core insights, life strategies, and powerful practices that have helped thousands. With him, you'll learn to move out of despair and into resilience, from worry to inner peace, reactivity to grounded self-control, shame to self-compassion, pessimism to an abiding optimism. Highlights: - Overcome your brain's negativity bias - Take back control of your emotions and your life - Heal old inner wounds to nurture security, connection, and compassion - Create a reserve of positive experiences to draw upon when you need it - Amplify your appreciation and enjoyment in each moment - Get into the "Green Zone," your optimal state of fulfillment, love, and courage - Over 8 hours of actionable insights and instruction for a happier life
