With New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Hansons four steps, you can counterbalance your brains negativity bias and learn to hardwire happiness in only a few minutes each day.

Hardwiring Happiness lays out a simple method that uses the hidden power of everyday experiences to build new neural structures full of happiness, love, confidence, and peace. Youll learn to see through the lies your brain tells you. Dr. Hansons four steps build strengths into your brain to make contentment and a powerful sense of resilience the new normal. In just minutes a day, you can transform your brain into a refuge and power center of calm and happiness.
