Number two, make sure to stay with good feelings as long as you can so that the memory will have a stronger impact on the brain. Number three, focus on the rewarding aspects of a hug with a person or a magic moment with your dog or cat.

Hanson calls these practices "taking in the good" or, if you prefer, you can use a more traditional term like "brightening the mind. He looks at intentions a form of desire , equanimity "not reacting to your reactions whatever they are" , kindness, empathy, and attention the five factors of concentration.
Some readers may find it a bit dry, as it reads a bit like a research paper which it essentially is , but it is just wonderful. Just the idea that science is proving the common sense of Buddhist principles makes me happy.
Hopefully it makes other people happy too. Rick Hanson, PhD, is a neuropsychologist and meditation teacher. He and his wife have two children. This book presents an unprecedented intersection of psychology, neurology, and contemplative practice, and is filled with practical tools and skills that you can use every day to tap the unused potential of your brain and rewire it over time for greater well-being and peace of mind.
