You've heard the expression, It’s the little things that count.” It's more than a simple platitude. Research has shown that integrating little daily practices into your life can actually change the way your brain works.
This guide offers simple things you can do routinely, mainly inside your mind, that will support and increase your sense of security and worth, resilience, effectiveness, well-being, insight, and inner peace. For example, they include: taking in the good, protecting your brain, feeling safer, relaxing anxiety about imperfection, not knowing, enjoying your hands, taking refuge, and filling the hole in your heart. At first glance, you may be tempted to underestimate the power of these seemingly simple practices. But they will gradually change your brain through what’s called experience-dependent neuroplasticity.
Moment to moment, whatever you're aware ofsounds, sensations, thoughts, or your most heartfelt longingsis based on underlying neural activities. This book offers simple brain training practices you can do every day to protect against stress, lift your mood, and find greater emotional resilience.
Just one practice each day can help you to: Be good to yourself Enjoy life as it is Build on your strengths Be more effective at home and work Make peace with your emotions
With over fifty daily practices you can use anytime, anywhere, Just One Thing is a groundbreaking combination of mindfulness meditation and neuroscience that can help you deepen your sense of well-being and unconditional happiness.

This book improves your life without putting any stress on you. You can take it in any order, or go straight through start to finish. One thing for every week of the year, just to make you happier in your life. “Just One Thing” really means that – one little easy thing to remember to do for yourself all week. Short and sweet. Highly recommended by a therapist friend.

We use these like daily devotions, reading one everyday. Some are deep, and many open a dialog between my wife and me. We look forward to seeing what’s next.

Just One Thing by Rick Hanson is a little jewel box of psychological gemstones. Consisting of “practices”, because awareness alone doesn’t usually change significant beliefs and behaviors that challenge our happiness. As a neuropsychologist, the author knows that our biology affects our brains and thus our minds. So we are urged to go beyond thinking to repetitive action and focus on a specific need. He is point-on about the human condition, insights gleaned from working as a psychotherapist, but writes as though he is speaking directly to you. These are pragmatic teachings but ones that are infused with joy and optimism. I am grateful to receive my lessons with a spirit such as this, heart-opening as well as mind-expanding. Years of teaching and practicing meditation are apparent influences. All this makes for a book of real substance.

WOW, I love this book! This book highlights simple, straigh forward practices that you can use to better your life, improve your outlook on life and help you shift your thinking to positive things. This book perfectly helped me put into practice theories I have picked up from at least half a dozen other self-help books. Each chapter (all 52 of them, one for each week of the year) is short, straight forward, addresses a new way to look at the world (focus on the good, fill the hole in your heart, find beauty, protect your brain etc.) and includes practices you can use to implement what the author is talking about. Everything in this book is easy to take in, but some things are difficult to practice. I have put most of this book to good use and feel like I am going to reread the rest of it until I get it down pat. I am a better person for reading it and highly recommend it to EVERYONE (religious or not).

This a great book for anyone wanting to understand more about eastern thought, Buddha and meditation. It is broken down into short, simple chapters—you can read them before bedtime, when you wake up, or any other time , to get back in touch with your inner self.

Amazing book! It condenses a lot of what is in other books on neural plasticity (rewiring your brain), self compassion, meditation, gratitude, etc. including some of the science that backs it up; and presents one small thing to do a day in very few words. Makes it SO easy to actually do something that might improve your life. Rick Hanson is an expert.

Good book. You don’t have to read straight through. But do read the introduction! I used this when I had a health crisis and it really helped me maintain a cheerful ( pretty much) attitude.
