The Mind Connection: How the Thoughts You Choose Affect Your Mood, Behavior, and Decisions
Author: Joyce Meyer
Publisher: FaithWords and Hachette, September 1, 2015
Description from Goodreads
Joyce Meyer, #1 New York Times bestselling author, explores the power of positive thinking and the undeniable connection between the mind, mouth, moods, and attitudes.
Thoughts can seem random and meaningless, but they impact your life every day. It’s all connected. What you think affects your words, attitude, decisions, and emotions and influences how you relate to yourself, to other people, and to God.
In The Mind Connection, Joyce Meyer successfully presents a Christian perspective of cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness. I myself have struggled using this type of therapy, but Meyer gives some valuable insights how to engage in substituting biblically based thoughts for unwanted ones, so I am hopeful.
However dedicated readers of Meyer’s books may notice that she has substituted her usual scripture quotes with quotes from famous people at the beginning of each chapter. I prefer the scriptures and hope in her next books she will return to the older format.
PLEASE NOTE: Recurring depression and anxiety as well as racing unwanted thoughts can be signs of serious illness. Anyone suffering from these symptoms should seek help from a qualified medical professional specializing in treating mental disorders. Afterwards, this book could be used in conjunction with any medical treatments.
This book was given to me from Faith Words / Hatchette Books through NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.
