The Mind Is Just Like A Muscle: A Self-Help Book For Teens On Growing Up in Modern America (Paperback)
We live in a crazy time. On top of that, you're trying to figure out who you are and how to find your place in this ever-changing world. You're building your plane while flying it.
The Mind Is Just Like A Muscle is a self-help book for teens that makes this daunting task not as intimidating. Through examples from science, history, and psychology, you learn about the unique qualities that make us human and how those qualities act as a filter for our experiences growing up in modern America.
You learn why things - people, places, ideas - that aren't familiar to us can feel scary or create fear. You build awareness around how our brains shape our experiences, and how the increasing interconnectedness of the modern era in turn affects us on an individual level and on a societal level.
This book encourages you to exercise your brain by building awareness of your life both inside and outside your household. Like any other muscle, the human brain needs exercise to get stronger. This book shares exercises and insights to help you make that happen.
