With an approachable tone, clear action steps, and an emphasis on neuroscience, positive reinforcement, and the “alive and active” power of “God’s Word,” Cooney explores the ways in which readers can shift their mindsets through building healthy thought patterns and "go[ing] to God" when feeling oppressed. Unstick Your Mind implores anyone who feels stuck to allow themselves time, forgiveness, and grace to free themselves from their "stuck" story or past traumas, but also to dive deep into the healing process of letting go of past hurts that trigger negative thoughts or responses.
With ample self-reflection exercises, insight into how the brain works, and clarifying considerations of the difference between emotional and mental health, Cooney demystifies tangled thought processes and lays out a practical rebooting process for the brain. Readers of faith seeking motivation and the chance to get out of their own ways will especially respond to this compact, flexible guide to preparing “to do the work of getting unstuck.”
Takeaway: Potent, practical motivational guide blending faith and neuroscience.
