Summary
"The mind is a powerful tool, but without good training, your moods, thoughts, and behaviour can sabotage your goals and cause depression and anxiety. Manage your Mind shows you how to keep mentally fit - how to tap into your mind's power - so you can enjoy your life to the fullest. Manage Your Mind also includes specific, up-to-date information on how to make decisions, strengthen your memory, stop smoking, sleep better, recover from alcohol abuse, and more."--Jacket
