Review: The Mind Manual

February 14th, 2018 | by Jaymelouise Hudspith

The Mind Manual is the brand new guide by author Andy Gibson, on how to better understand what’s going on inside your head, this book provides a practical break down to care for your mind and your health in a simple, yet direct way.

Gibson uses popular psychology, and the wisdom of Mindapple’s global community to break down and advice so that you can better understand your mind with the use of easy to follow ‘how to…’ chapters including being yourself, being happy, kind, resilient, wise and in love.

We rely on your minds for everything we do but we have little understanding of the mechanics behind our processes, how our minds really work, or what is best for them. The aim behind this Mind Manual is to change all of that, Gibson and the Mindapples community developed this as party of their campaign; 5 a day for a happy, healthy mind.

This easy guide covers all the essentials leaving you with the tools to change your personality, bad habits, productivity, lifestyle, thought process and even your relationships, all for the better.

This book is easily accessible and discusses these concepts at a beginner’s level to give a crash course in appreciating your mind. With a clear insight into cognitive science, neuroscience and psychology to support their work and ensure they are providing the best advice to improve your mental and physical wellbeing.

I would recommend this book to all students, not only will it help improve your wellbeing but also your ability to cope issues such as stress and its side effects, which every student can relate too; insomnia, emotional distress, changes in appetite, etcetera. However, it will also expose you to the tools you need to better yourself, be more confident, and generally improve your life. Some of the sections cover topics familiar to us all, such as making sure your body stays hydrated but it simply reinforces the importance to avoid the repercussions so that your mind and body don’t suffer. This will not only help you day to day but also with exams and studies, job interviews, planning for the future and your mental health. There is no downside to having a better understand of what makes you you or why you act and behave the way you do.

Gibson has succeeded in creating a fun and interesting guide on the mind when he could have so easily fallen into the trap and produced something of a heavy textbook style, full of research and studies no one outside of the respective field could ever full comprehend. Instead, the manuals use of interactive sections where you can set yourself goals to improve or highlight your weaknesses, but it also colour coordinates the pages of each section with the topics you are reading. Frequently using large diagrams and inspirational quotations to ensure that reading this book is light and easy.
