Taming the frenzy in your brain
Book offers advice about how to get organized.
According to the book Organize Your Mind, Organize Your Life, the key to a less hectic, less stressful life is not simply to become more organized, but to change the way you think. The authors are Dr. Paul Hammerness, assistant professor of psychiatry and a researcher in brain sciences at Massachusetts General Hospital, and Margaret Moore, co-director of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital — both Harvard-affiliated institutions.
In their book, Dr. Hammerness and Ms. Moore explore the latest brain science underlying organization and offer tips about how to use the innate organizational power of your brain to make your life less stressful, more productive, and ultimately more rewarding. They discussed some of the key messages of their book with the editors of the Harvard Mental Health Letter.
