Reviews

"An accessible synthesis of the neuroscience of sensation, interfused with a practical set of strategies, tactics and tools, designed to actively engage and recalibrate capacity to 'sense one's own senses.' Farb and Segal have outlined the essential building blocks and provided a straightforward series of practices to help us more agilely respond and thrive in an ever-changing and challenging world."--Helen Mayberg, MD, Mount Sinai

"The wisdom in this book is palpable. The authors distill their deep expertise in neuroscience and mental health into vivid stories and enticing exercises. You'll come away with practical insights on why, when, and how certain wellness activities enliven you whereas others fall flat. Looking to escape habit loops that keep you stuck? Then read this book, awaken your senses, and stay curious."--Barbara Fredrickson, PhD, Author of Positivity and Love 2.0

"Norm Farb and Zindel Segal, two renowned contemplative scientists, have written the go-to book for a deep, sophisticated, and useful understanding of the brain, the mind, and mood--while illuminating a fundamental path to flourishing. The secret is 'sense foraging'-- a beautiful practice that opens the door to a more joyful, connected, and purposeful life. You must try these accessible exercises and sense for yourself!"--Elissa Epel, PhD, author of New York Times bestseller The Telomere Effect and The Stress Prescription

"We are creatures of habit. Our minds--and lives--run largely on autopilot, which can help us survive day to day, but can get us stuck in cycles of depression, anxiety or simply getting by. Farb and Segal expertly unpack the difference between being alive and truly living, and in the process, make complex neuroscience accessible. They also guide us with practical tools to awaken to the freshness of each moment so that we can truly live our lives Better in Every Sense."--Judson Brewer, MD, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Unwinding Anxiety and The Craving Mind

"These two highly trained and highly skilled professionals have got the chops -- and the goods -- to help you genuinely upgrade your life."--Dan Harris, author of 10% Happier

"When you are feeling stressed or stuck, how do you relate to your life? In Better in Every Sense the authors take us through the science of tools to get out of the 'house of habit' and offer ways to re-engage with your life.
A wonderful new book by Norman Farb and Zindel Segal. Fascinating, thought-provoking, and so useful in these trying times." --Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Life

"A brilliant, user-friendly, and easy-to-implement framework explaining why intentionally tuning in to our senses and learning how to trust them and expand their repertoire in outside-the-box ways--what the authors call 'sense foraging'--is profoundly liberative and healing, revolutionary, and yet totally commonsensical."--Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of MBSR and author of Coming to Our Senses and Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief
