Overview

Stop running. Nothing is chasing you.

Thanks to technology, today’s world is more comfortable than ever, but our survival instinct that evolved to protect us from danger is on high alert. Though mild discomforts such as work demands, traffic jams, family conflict, or having to perform under pressure are not life threatening, they can still trigger the brain’s fight or flight fear reaction. And this response can lead to a reliance on drugs, alcohol, overeating, insomnia, phobias, chronic pain, illness, or just losing our temper for no apparent reason. In this eye-opening book, psychologist Dr. Marc Schoen offers practical strategies to tame your overly reactive survival instinct and conquer fear, build resilience, boost decision-making, and improve every aspect of your life.

Your Survival Instinct Is Killing You has the most clever title of the month, but it is also a retrain your brain for a better life tutorial that actually works.

    This book has shed new light in the area of discomfort and how it affects us all. The author provides great insights into this topic
    however my only wish would have been to have a more comprehensive outlined method for retraining your brain. I feel it was lacking in this area which is why I bought the book so I could find the best way to retrain my brain. All in all the information about discomfort & case examples were helpful to my understanding of this problem.
