Publisher's Summary

This breakthrough book presents a disarmingly simple idea: The way we pay attention in daily life can play a critical role in our health and well-being. According to Dr. Les Fehmi, a clinical psychologist and researcher, many of us have become stuck in “narrow-focus attention”: a tense, constricted, survival mode of attention that holds us in a state of chronic stress - and which lies at the root of common ailments including anxiety, depression, ADD, stress-related migraines, and more. To improve these conditions, Dr. Fehmi explains that we must learn to return to a relaxed, diffuse, and creative form of attention, which he calls “Open Focus.”

This highly listenable and empowering book offers straightforward explanations and simple exercises on how to shift into a more calm, open style of attention that reduces stress, improves health, and enhances performance. The Open-Focus Brain features eight essential attention exercises for improving health.

Dr. Fehmi writes, “Everyone has the ability to heal their nervous systems, to dissolve their pain, to slow down and yet accomplish more, to experience the deeper side of life - in short, to change their lives for the better dramatically.” At last listeners can learn the techniques that Dr. Fehmi has offered to thousands of clients - the same drug-free, safe, and effective techniques that have led to remarkable and long-lasting results.

The Open-Focus Brain offers listeners a revolutionary, drug-free way to:

  • alleviate depression, anxiety, and ADD
  • reduce stress-related chronic pain
  • optimize mental and physical performance

So powerful and practical

We are not typically aware how we are using our attention but our attention is our experience. It is so important to be aware of and skillful with our attention. This book will teach you both.

To scientific and proof written detail

I look forward to this book thinking I would become more focused. They spent time explaining what focused meant through alpha waves, e. e.g. readings
This was to alert you how your brain is working. Fine and well if you know what the brain waves mean. Not a practical help book to become more focused. Casual in frequent exercises failed to validate the book.

Not self help fluff but the real answer

Why oh why is this not more known. It pieces together such a clear take on the human condition in modern western language and more over, teaches you how to fix it.
