Editors Note Real-life success springs from a state of calm. A brilliant neurologist reveals a new paradigm of brain function that is the key to tranquility in the midst of our daily crises. |Stress: The more success we have in life, the worse it seems to get. Necks and shoulders tighten. Sleep becomes elusive. Relaxation?even lying on the beach?feels impossible. But Dr. Gayatri Devi has uncovered the answer: Calm the body, and the mind follows. In this fascinating and vital book, she helps readers unruffle both. ||Forget about the old left-and right-brain paradigm?life success occurs when our rational ?top? and older, more connected ?bottom? brains are working together. Calm, a sense of internal composure enabling us to function at the peak of our abilities, comes from the bottom (brain) up. It is the ideal mental state, fully allied with the body, allowing us to harness cognitive powers while maintaining a perfect balance of emotions. When you're calm, you're in your zone, unperturbed by distractions or distress. ||In a warm, accessible voice, Dr. Devi elucidates the neuroscience of calm and shares stories from her practice on New York's Upper East Side, such as how a woman plagued with migraines managed to wean herself from pain medicine. More personally, she recalls how her grandfather was the mellow eye of the storm in a riotous household of Indian women. Chapters on the workday, sleep, men versus women, and parenting provide practical applications. The best news of all? You don't need more drugs.
