“Busy Brain”

You probably know the feeling of being overwhelmed. Maybe you’ve felt the sensation of having a “too-busy brain.” Perhaps your work is mounting, your car has stopped working, or someone at home is ill and you’re the caregiver. With so much happening, perhaps all at the same time, you could feel pretty anxious. You might start worrying; your thoughts about all these problems could harass you. You could agonize about your ability to cope. Amid that crisis, if you examined different parts of your brain, perhaps you’d understand what you’re experiencing.

    As a fan of neuroscience , I have been searching all this while for a book like this that brings together the whole brain concept for explaining our thoughts and the internal chatter. A compulsory buy for me for sure and a big thumbs up for the excellent summary
