Powerful techniques to improve your attention and life-changing skills to increase your sense of well-being and effectiveness.
How you pay attention affects every moment of your conscious life, so learning how to be flexible with your focus can profoundly change how you respond to everyday challenges. Dr. Les Fehmi and Susan Shor Fehmi, pioneers in biofeedback, have spent decades developing and applying these methods with clients in their private clinical practice. In The Open-Focus Life, they coach you through common everyday stressors and show you how to shift out of modes of attention that exacerbate negative feelings and into modes of calm and balance.
These quick, practical techniques will improve how you feel in your body, how you relate to people at work and at home, and how you interact with your everyday environment to achieve a more relaxed life and more effective habits.Author BioA pioneer in the field of neurofeedback, Les Fehmi, PhD, BCIA-EEG, was director of the Princeton Biofeedback Centre in Princeton, New Jersey.

"The Open-Focus Life is a guide for the most challenging moments of our lives. It takes the basic skills from the Fehmis' previous books and offers a crucial step toward integrating making the Open-Focus Method into every day. Using this approach allows us to make stress into an opportunity to transform who we are." —Richard P.
