Beschreibung

QuickRead presents a summary of "You Are Not Your Brain" by Jeffrey M. Schwartz and Rebecca Gladding:

Written for anyone who's ever experienced intrusive thoughts or anxiety, neuroscientists Jeffrey M. Schwartz and Rebecca Gladding challenge the neural wiring that creates these thoughts in an effort to equip readers for fighting them. 

By providing readers with a toolkit called the Four Step Method, Schwartz and Gladding teach us to free ourselves from toxic thought patterns by simply relabeling, reframing, refocusing, and revaluing our thoughts. Exploring therapeutic techniques and neural concepts such as self-directing neuroplasticity with accessibility and ease, You Are Not Your Brain invites readers to disengage from negative self-talk and remember that the lies produced by our brains do not define our self-worth.

You Are Not Defined by Your Brain

Our minds wander; it’s just what they do. But sometimes, they seem to veer off the path into a dark wood, dragging us into places we really don’t want to go. When this happens, we often feel helpless to reclaim our train of thought and instead allow ourselves to run off the rails in pursuit of it until our minds are a mess, our mood is ruined, and we find ourselves shaking and battling doubts. It happens to everyone. But wouldn’t it be great if we could stop it? Schwartz posits that we can and that it’s possible to cut off our negative thought patterns before they spiral into overthinking and anxiety. To illustrate this point, he provides an example of a patient he once helped.

Although he was a successful Broadway performer who was pretty much living his dream, this young man was firmly in the grip of his brain’s negative self-talk and had internalized the message that he was worthless, untalented, and undeserving of any good fortune. As you might imagine, this lead to the development of some significant problems in his career, including stage fright and an almost crippling fear of rejection that prevented him from trying out for new roles. With Schwartz’ help, he was able to acknowledge that his fear stemmed from a traumatic experience in which he completely froze in an audition for a famous Broadway producer. Unable to move, perform, or even speak, he of course lost the audition and internalized this experience as being indicative of his own inherent failure.

This, in turn, lead him to reject the truths about himself and his talents
