Teaser Tuesday: Think Happy by Karen Salmansohn

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books And A Beat.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
 Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
 BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
When you're stressed, your brain enters into "fight or flight" - and it gets stuck in its less smart "reptilian brain" setting. This is why people under great stress feel tongue-tied and choked up... When you do something to de-stress, you exit "fight or flight" and tap back into your smarter-thinking neocortex and limbic system.
Almost everything works better if you unplug for a few minutes - including you.  ~ Ann Lamott
- quotations from #3 from the section "5 Things to Say When You Feel Stressed Out"
Not sure I agree with everything in this book of mini pep talks, but I liked this one. The idea of stepping back for a minute or more so that you can reboot your thinking makes sense. 
Think Happy - Instant Peptalks to Boost Positivity by Karen Salmansohn was released August 9, 2016 from Ten Speed Press.
What's your teaser this week? Share it or a link in the comments. Are you enjoying your book? Let us know! Happy Reading!
