Description du produit


     Want to be happy, dammit? If so, you gotta teach your old brain some new tricks and start thinking more optimistically! When you train your brain to think more positive thoughts, you’re more likely to form positive habits—which then leads you to more positive results. (And I’m positive about that!)
     Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to think positively. Life is full of ups and downs; it ebbs and flows. And sometimes during the tough times, we find ourselves stuck in a downward “negative-thought spiral.” All too quickly we go from thinking “this one thing sucks” to “my whole DAY sucks” to “my WHOLE LIFE sucks” to “THE WORLD SUCKS” to  “DISTANT GALAXIES SUCK!”
     So, what’s the solution? Instant Happy, of course! This book uses a psychological tool called pattern interrupts to stop a moving train of negative thoughts in its tracks. Each page in this book offers a different pattern interrupt—or what I refer to as a “happy-thought intervention”—designed to counteract limiting beliefs and jumpstart a new pattern of positive, productive thought.
     But what’s the big deal with positivity, anyway? Well, in order to answer that question, we first have to look at what’s so wrong with negative thinking.
Neuroscientists have a biological explanation for why those downward negative-thought spirals happen in the first place. MRIs have shown that every time people think angry thoughts or imagine worst-case scenarios, they send a surge of blood flowing into the brain regions associated with depression and anger—which refuels their depression and anger in a destructive feedback loop. The sadder and angrier you become, the more your body gets flooded with troublemaking “fight or flight” neurochemicals, which shut down the more evolved neocortex part of your brain. Basically, when you’re trapped in a really negative fight-or-flight thought pattern, you’re limited to using a mere 20 percent of your brain’s thinking power. This is why during tough times you might find it very difficult to interpret events correctly, communicate feelings effectively, or think with a long-term optimistic lens.
     Happily, MRIs have also shown that when people start to think happy thoughts, they send a surge of blood flowing into brain regions associated with happiness—widening their positive neural pathways and making it easier and more automatic for them to think better, calmer thoughts. Meaning? If you keep reading Instant Happy, and keep focusing on those happy thought interventions, then over time it will become easier and easier for you to think more positively!
Kind of cool, isn’t it—how you can create a happier reality simply by thinking in a happier way? Happiness truly does not come from the things you have. It comes from the thoughts you have!
     So, here’s how you can use Instant Happy to boost your joy and peace of mind: Whenever you find yourself stuck in a limiting thought pattern, unstick thyself by flipping to a page, any page, in this book. What you’ll find is an inspirational flashcard—a positive, affirming statement paired with a graphic. (Oh, and about those graphics: Research has shown that when you incorporate visuals into your learning process, you are better at “recording” lessons in your permanent memory bank. So the illustrations in Instant Happy aren’t just fun to look at—they’re also an important tool that will encourage your brain to fully remember all the positive messages it is learning!) You don’t have to wait until you’re in a bad mood to read these inspirational flashcards. Make a practice of starting or ending your day by reading one of ’em—or two of ’em—or five—or twenty-seven of ’em!
     As you’re first reading through Instant Happy, you may find yourself rejecting many of the positive affirmations because they conflict too much with your current, negative beliefs. Good! The inspirational flashcards that stir up the most resistance are the ones you should pay the most attention to—because they’re definitely creating a pattern interrupt. Keep rereading these in particular! And remember—even if at first you have to fake the positivity, eventually you will make the positivity. After all, repetition works, repetition works, repetition works!
     It may seem hard to believe, but you think 60,000 thoughts a day.  The purpose of Instant Happy is to give you the tools and the motivation to choose happy thoughts—not to waste 59,999 on negative, limited thinking. No matter how busy or stressed you think you are, you always have time for a quick pattern interrupt—think of it as a ten-second attitude makeover! My hope for you is that over time, you’ll get closer and closer to your goal of 60,000 positive thoughts a day.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not made for reading 27 mai 2016
Par Julio Martelo - Publié sur Amazon.com

Do not buy if you actually want to READ... This book is nothing more than a collection of pictures with some one liners. You're better off searching "motivational quotes" on Google and looking through the pictures. It's a good coffee table book as someone mentioned but it's not really "self help". This is only my opinion but like I said if you want to read something that gives you tips for example, look elsewhere.

Just leave it to Karen to touch us with such powerful images and thoughts. This book has mighty 10 second messages which will last a lifetime in my brain. Using a series of "happy-though intervention" Karen uses her artwork, photos, and clever sayings to help me understand that to be happy one must think positive and break through old negativity patterns.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Cute coffee-table or office-desk book 10 avril 2013

I enjoy following the author, Karen Salmansohn, on Facebook, because her posters and quotes are all inspiring and challenge you to live life fully engaged and not become a victim of circumstance. I bought this book, because I wanted to own some of her inspiring quotes in a way that would allow me to share them with visitors to my home and/or office. I would love if she would create either a screen-saver of some of her newer posters or a DVD of the posters and set it to music. It would be a great thing to play on my computer when in screen-saver mode, or to playback on an office or doctor's lobby TV screen. This is not a deep, psycho-analytical, self-help book. However, it is a Positive/Motivational book, and one I think readers will enjoy for its humor and colorful pages. It's also good gift item for a recent H.S. or college graduate.
