Summary
  • "How the Body Knows Its Mind takes you inside the amazing science of how the body affects the mind, and shows how to use that wisdom to live smarter and maximize what your body teaches your mind"--
  • "A new understanding of the mind-body connection and its profound impact on everything from advertising to romance. The human body is not just a passive device carrying out messages sent by the brain, but rather an integral part of how we think and make decisions. Sian Beilock, author of 'Choke : what the secrets of the brain reveal about getting it right when you have to' turns the conventional understanding of the mind upside down. Our bodies "hack" our brains. The way we move affects our thoughts, our decisions, and even our preferences for particular products. Called "embodied cognition," this new idea shows the power of the body and its physical surroundings to shape how we think, feel, and behave. Pacing around the room can enhance creativity; gesturing during a speech can help ensure that you don't draw a blank; kids learn better when their bodies are part of the learning process; walking in nature boosts concentration skills; and Botox users experience less depression"--Provided by publisher
