This is a great book! It explains how your mind works and how to "fix" it and clean up your thought life, which results in curing ailments and eliminating stress. This book is a life changer!

Extremely well written. It was really helpful in clearing up negative thought patterns and redirecting thoughts. It is really interesting to see how what she says lines up with Joyce Meyer's book "Power Thoughts"

The book explains how our thoughts affect our mind which feeds our brain. What we read or view feeds our minds Negative thoughts and fear are toxic to the mind.

Switch On Your Brain: The Key to Peak Happiness, Thinking, and Health by Caroline Leaf was a well written book that I found very interesting and I liked that I was able to understand it all with ease. As a psychology graduate I found the content particularly interesting and I wish I could have read it when I was working on my bachelor's degree in psychology as it would have worked well with multiple papers I had to write! I received this book for free for only my honest review.
