“The Joy Switch” is a good title for anyone wanting to learn more about how the brain affects our relationship with others and what to do to improve those relationships. Around 160 pages, the title addresses several topics, including:
– How different levels of the brain affects our relationship with others.
– Various roadblocks to relationships.
– The importance of rest (physical, relational, taking a break from technology, etc.) for improving relationships. I especially appreciate the author pointing out this very important (and often overlooked factor) for stronger relationships.
– Relaxing and taking care of our physical bodies.
Many other topics are covered – those listed above are just a few of the topics that stood out and struck a strong cord with me. The book is very readable, full of spiritual and practical insights, and is a valuable aid for improving relationships. Recommended.
