When I saw the title of this book in Kate’s micro-bio, I thought to myself, “Aha!! FINALLY!! Someone is talking about positive psychology and the body!!”
(Yes, that’s how I talk to myself.) (And, yes. This is the kind of thing that gets me fired up. :)
So, of course, I immediately got the book. Read it. And, here we are.
This is actually a *textbook* not a normal book. It provides an overview of research on a range of subjects including: “Positive Psychophysiology,” “Positive Neuroscience,” “Positive Sexuality” and “Positive Nutrition.”
Otherwise, you’ll probably be better off checking out our Notes on the authors mentioned in the book, including: John Ratey’s , Richard Davidson’s , Dan Siegel’s , Tyler Graham and Drew Ramsey’s , Kristin Neff’s , Barbara Fredrickson’s , Martin Seligman’s , and , Carol Dweck’s and , and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s and .
It’s packed with Big Ideas and I’m excited to share some of my favorites so let’s jump straight in!
