Instead of giving in to apathy, Amen shows us in his new book You, Happier how we can actually train our brains to be happy. By understanding your brain type and what triggers happiness in your mind (do you love routine or prefer spontaneity?) you can do more of what you love. Plus, he shares with us the neuroscience secrets we need to know so you can hack your way to a happier life.
