Neuroscientist Amishi P. Jha, Ph.D., director of contemplative neuroscience and professor at the University of Miami, has dedicated her life’s work to understanding the science of attention at every level – from brain imaging studies in a lab to field testing soldiers, athletes, students, and firefighters. Her purpose is to scientifically determine how we can harness the full power of our attention to meet all that life demands. In Peak Mind: Find Your Focus, Own Your Attention, Invest 12 Minutes a Day (HarperOne), Jha guides the reader through research, debunking common assumptions and offering new insights into where presence and purpose come from. Peak Mind offers flexible 12-minute-a-day exercises to lift mental fog, declutter the mind, and strengthen focus to harness the full power of attention and experience more of life.
