Isn’t that annoying to hear, par- ticularly if it’s delivered in that ultra-drawn- out voice that tries to be soothing? You might not say it out loud but you could well be thinking, “That’s easy for you to say” or “Who has time to slow down?” In his second book on the subject, Carl Honoré, author of In Praise of Slow, slips past those objections with his honesty and self-deprecating tone, plus some great stories of speed gone bad. He makes a compelling case and offers real advice you can put into practice now. And hurry up about it. LOVE 2.0 How Our Supreme Emotion Affects Everything We Feel, Think, Do, and Become By Barbara Fredrickson What’s love got to do with it? Everything, according to positive emotion psycholo- gist Barbara Fredrickson. But, she says, we focus too much on the “falling in” part and the kind of love that we share with a mate. But love is too deep in our marrow to be so cons trained. We have a primor- dial need to forge strong bonds, and the good feelings we derive are a key to deep health. Fredrickson shows us many more avenues of affection than just finding our one true love. THE ANTIDOTE Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking By Oliver Burkeman In our go-for-gold world, happiness is achieving goals. Face the inevitable challenges, slap a smile on your face, ward off discouragement, forge ahead. Good luck with that, says Oliver Burkeman, who writes a popular psychology column in The Guardian. Being goal crazy, fear ful of looking deeply at failure, glossing over disappointment—this is not the royal road to a happy life. The alternative: embrace uncer tainty and get friendly with failure. You won’t be disappointed. ● STRESS-PROOF YOUR BRAIN 8-CD set by Rick Hanson It’s a given by now that stress is at the root of a lot of our human challenges, but with that often comes the unhelpful notion that you can somehow avoid it. You can’t. You can, however, get much better at danc- ing with it. This audio recording by Rick Hanson, available online at Sounds True, begins with a 30-minute explanation of how stress cycles through the systems of our brains and bodies—and how it sets off the fireworks of negative thoughts and behaviors that often seed fur ther stress. The seven disks that follow offer prac tices designed to keep those unwanted pyro- technics at a minimum while learning to draw our well-being into the spotlight.
