WHAT SETS YOU OFF?
THE SPOUSE WHO PUSHES YOUR BUTTONS. THE CHILDREN WHO WON’T LISTEN. ANNOYING COWORKERS. REJECTION. TRAFFIC HASSLES.
All these can set you off. And, just like that, a good day becomes a bad day. Under the right conditions, all of us can be pushed too far. The trick is knowing how to “get back” to healthy emotions—to that sweet spot. What’s the secret? It’s as easy as flipping a switch.
Brain science has discovered that there is a “switch” inside your brain that activates joy—the secret of healthy emotions. When joy is lacking, when the switch is off, we can’t be our best selves. We become angry, overwhelmed, sad. The good news is we don’t have to stay that way. The Joy Switch will help you:
• RECOGNIZE WHEN YOU’RE LOSING JOY
• IDENTIFY YOUR PARTICULAR “TRIGGERS”
• LEARN HOW TO STAY IN JOY!
Packed with illustrations, expert insight, and helpful self-assessments, The Joy Switch will help you thrive amid life’s everyday challenges.
