Product Details


“With beautiful illustrations and powerful exercises, Take in the Good is a step-by-step guide to acceptance and loving transformation. A poetic and practical roadmap for awakening to what is, for teenagers, and readers of all ages who seek clarity, courage, and peace.”— Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

“This enormously helpful and practical book uses the power of positive neuroplasticity to hardwire confidence, calm, and happiness into the nervous system. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the suggestions and mini-meditations are fabulous. Truly a gem.”—Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Resilient

“Life in high school is fast-paced, and it can sometimes feel like there’s only enough time to go to school, do homework, and sleep. I read this book in the beginning of my junior year, and one idea that really resonated with me was that stress is like waves in the ocean. In order to manage stress, you must notice and ride these waves—and then find a way to “drop anchor.” Now, when I find myself in a stressful situation, I visualize each wave coming up and myself floating over it.”—Liv Bailey, a student at Maine’s Yarmouth High School, and contributing writer for KidSpirit

“In this book, Biegel zeroes in on helping teens understand neuroplasticity, the process by which our brain changes in response to our experiences—and how directing our attention to the positive, i.e. “taking in the good,” trains our brain to be happy and resilient. There’s plenty to read in here, plus lots of prompts to write, move, and try out a variety of skills for emotional health.”—Mindful
