The Pleasure Zone: Why We Resist Good Feelings and How to Let Go and Be Happy

The Pleasure Zone: Why We Resist Good Feelings and How to Let Go and Be Happy

by StellaResnick (Author)

Synopsis

There is an enormous untapped potential for pleasure in every one of us that has yet to be fully explored. So says psychologist Stella Resnick who, for more that twenty years, has been helping people stop focusing on what's wrong in their lives and begin noticing what's right. Stella Resnick recognises that people often have a fixed ceiling on how much pleasure they think they can tolerate. In this ground-breaking work she clears these boundaries of pleasure by linking optimism, physical health, emotional fulfilment in love, deeply gratifying sex and positive ageing to our ability to enjoy eight core pleasures which she identifies. Complete with inspiring stories of people who have learnt to reclaim pleasures they have cut themselves off from, each chapter concludes with a set of simple personal experiments designed to aid readers in gaining skill at enjoying that pleasure more completely.
