Chatter: The Voice in Our Head and How to Harness It by Ethan Kross - Book Recommendation
Our minds rarely ever keep quiet. Day after day, it dredges up some past
events or reminds us of some future. Some of us pay attention to these
activities more than the others. Unfortunately, some of us also take
these endless mind mutterings more seriously than we should... sometimes
to the point of obsession.
Chatter by Ethan Kross brings a topic rarely discussed to the fore. This is an audiobook that looks at the advantages and disadvantages of the voices in our head. It explains ways they can sabotage us and what to do when it happens.
THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE BOOK
There is a good depth of research that seems to have gone into this book and it shows. I loved listening to the case studies and various other examples of people who were stuck on the voices in there head. It was interesting learning what those voices kept repeating to them and how it affected their outlook on life.
The solutions the author proffers to the problem of overthinking aren't too dissimilar from meditation, but each one of these solutions stands on its own merits and is backed by years of research. Having said that, it is up to individuals to figure out what works for them.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Chatter by Ethan Kross is for people suffering from debilitating self-talk, restless mind, and lack of confidence. This book could be a game-changer for them.
