It Took Me 10 Years, But Not So For You

I probably shouldn’t share this, but I started writing Get Back into Whack a long time ago. I bought the domain in 2011. I started to write about brain function, how the mind works, the effects of stress on the body, and more.

Then I went into a transitional period where I knew that some pieces to the puzzle were missing.

I studied behavioral neuroscience – especially in the fields of habit formation and how to make them “stick.” I continued my education, research, and personal experimentation.

Then I researched and experimented some more.

This process went on for years until I felt I had a handle on why it is that some can easily adapt to new habits while others don’t.

This is the result: I’ve distilled a decade’s worth of research and application into one book. One comprehensive book.

And TODAY, you can grab it for an embarrassingly low price.


Because I think everyone should have the opportunity to Get Back into Whack.

What You’ll Find in Get Back into Whack

Here’s a brief summary of what you’ll find in each chapter:

 Chapter 1 What Drives You?

Chapter 1 explores the concepts of healing, transformation, and habits. It details brain function and studies how the brain searches for patterns in order to make sense of the world around us. This chapter introduces the important concept of the MAPP (our Mind’s Assessment of our Personal Patterns). Understanding the unique tendencies of how our mind works offers insight into selecting methods of healing progress that work best for each of us as individuals.

Chapter 2 – The Great Mental Divide

Chapter 2 goes into greater detail on brain (mind) function, defining the unique characteristics of both conscious and nonconscious thought patterns. This root-level topic helps readers to gain awareness of how the parts of the mind work in tandem to facilitate goal achievement, congruency of values, motivation, and more. This topic of discussion also seeds greater awareness of negative behaviors such as critical self-talk and self-sabotage.     

Chapter 3 – Sabotage, Surprises, & Self-Chatter        

Chapter 3 examines the theme of self-sabotage and unwanted behaviors that may seem perplexing. The topics of fears, resistance, actions, brain chaos, and facts vs. beliefs are discussed. Also included is an illustration of how unforeseen fears can stop or hinder progress.

Chapter 4 – The Pain Brain & Chronic Symptoms

Chapter 4 introduces the relationship between the functions of the brain and how the body perceives pain. It shares more information on the connections between how our brain processes thoughts (either negative or positive) and our ability to react or adapt.

Chapter 5 – Smart Systems & Strategies

Chapter 5 explores the presence of self-talk as it relates to our ability to take action and follow through on our desired behaviors. This chapter offers several key strategies to deal with negative self-talk as well as a powerful CBT-based (cognitive behavioral therapy) method to pivot away from feeling stuck and toward positive action.

Chapter 6 – Your Brain’s Happiness Springboard                

Chapter 6 provides a convenient space to define your goals (in several key areas). It also shares concepts and ideas that often block success so that they can be identified and navigated in advance. This chapter details the various brainwave states to clarify what states facilitate or enhance learning, creativity, focus, productivity, healing, and more.

Chapter 7 – Motivation Mastery: Potholes & Bridges

Chapter 7 explores the concept of focus – why it can sometimes be fleeting and arbitrary. This chapter answers the age-old question of “why is it that I do what I don’t want to do?” It explores the connection between our intentions and our actions and provides a method to amplify motivation (which improves results). 

Chapter 8 – Stress: My Story & the AWOL Factor

Chapter 8 digs into the topic of stress, revealing both the physical and emotional impact on the body. I share a brief retelling of my health recovery story and pinpoint what I know now as opposed to what I knew then. Also provided in this chapter are several key stress management methods, a general philosophy on healing chronic health challenges, an overview of epigenetics, and a discussion on the broad topic of inflammation.

Chapter 9 – Stress: Waiting for the Stop Sign to Turn Green

Chapter 9 digs even deeper into the body’s response to stress. This chapter discusses what impact stress has on the brain itself as well as a discussion about one of the primary subjects of this book – the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). The chronic illness body becomes “stuck” in the fight, flight, or freeze response of the ANS, and suggestions for counteracting this effect are shared. This chapter also introduces the subject of micro habits and how they can limit the body’s exposure to the stress response and improve overall health in a big way.

Chapter 10 – Sketch Your Own Success Blueprint

Chapter 10 begins with an overview of the process of how change happens. This chapter provides a detailed and powerful strategy to facilitate change called the ADAPT and GROW technique. Step-by-step details of this method are illustrated as a blueprint for success.

Chapter 11 – Case Study: A Portrait of Self-Growth

Chapter 11 provides a real-life case study of the ADAPT and GROW technique in action. The easy-to-follow steps of this technique are outlined in this chapter and share one person’s path of discovery as she creates positive lifestyle changes for herself and for her family.

Chapter 12 – Navigate Smooth Seas or Squalls

Chapter 12 reveals the four phases of growth, which serve as an outline of the learning process. This chapter also shares the Smooth Sailing analogy, which uncovers insights about the hurdles and positive advancements of the chronic illness journey. This chapter also reveals vital news about the often-misunderstood notion of willpower.

Chapter 13 – Transformational Healing

Chapter 13 sheds light on the subjects of post-traumatic growth, control, and the search for acceptance. I share a consensus of needs/wants that clients reveal to me about their own healing journeys and my analysis of what I’ve discovered in the process of working with them. This chapter also shares a simple process to sort through potentially destructive thoughts. 

Chapter 14 – Grab Your Cape & Become a GBiW Superhero

Chapter 14 provides details on nearly two dozen character traits often associated with success, happiness, and whole-body healing. Readers are encouraged to review and align with the traits that feel right to them to assist with goal achievement, lifestyle planning, development of healthy relationships, and much more.

Chapter 15 – Inspirational Clarity

Chapter 15 unravels more details on the tangled topics of happiness, motivation, and willpower. This chapter shares information on how to employ the dynamics of polar opposites for healing success as well as using power questions to unearth what’s in the way of progress.  

Chapter 16 – Compendium of Potent Practices to Build-a-Better-Brain

Chapter 16 provides over seven dozen techniques to Build-a-Better-Brain. Readers are encouraged to put any – or some – of these practices into use on a daily basis. While this isn’t a completely exhaustive list, the plethora of options in this chapter provides readers with a good idea of the type of practices that soothe the brain, and by extension, body. These practices pave the way for healing opportunities.  

Chapter 17 – A Cascade of Brain Benefits

Chapter 17 offers a comprehensive list of the dozens of benefits that the Build-a-Better-Brain practices provide. These benefits affirm the value of putting brain-enhancing activities into practice. This chapter also includes a Daily Healing Recipe, 8 great brain-healthy tips, and a protocol for turning desired behaviors into habits.

Chapter 18 – Blast Away Objections for Instant Momentum

Chapter 18 offers final suggestions on how to move forward despite concerns and hesitations. As a preventative measure, this chapter lays out and evaluates common objections and obstacles to the process of adapting to change. This chapter also offers a Healing Chronic Illness Overview that hits the high spots of the overall process.
