Design Your Mind
Everyday tools to make every day better
This is a guide to mastering our mind – to boost creativity, improve decision-making, enhance intuition and happiness, rediscover authenticity and reduce stress.
Every time we learn something, create a memory or form a habit, we are designing our mind. Such plasticity is beneficial, but it also leads to maladaptive stress responses, addictions and phobias. With the tools provided, these do not need to be an endpoint.
Do you always make good decisions? Have you heard of ‘nudging’? Many western governments now have a ‘behavioural insight team’ whose unique job it is to affect the way we think and act. Discover the mental processes and brain networks they are targeting.
Maybe you use intuition consciously. We all dip into this whether we know it or not. And there is scientific evidence to back up how important and useful it is. In these pages learn how to boost this skill.
Are you interested in humour? Do you read social cues well and use insight? To master these and other abilities there is a simple process, easy to replicate once you know the trick.
Is health a priority? Then draw back the curtain on the way mind influences healing and brain ageing, and discover why placebos work. The power of the mind is astonishing.
Dip into the pages to unravel the mystery of facts versus belief, through the story of Santa Clause, the sinking of the Titanic, and the discovery of meteorites.
Perhaps you want to step beyond the conventional? Take a journey with the author to explore the science behind intuition and nonlocal mind. Backed by 30 years of involvement in sensory biology and behaviour, science communication, and a lifetime of experience with the weird and wonderful, BW Cribb empowers us with new ways of thinking and being.
