Imagine being less stressed, more focused, and happier every day of your life. Start Here outlines a program designed to help you do just that by cross-training the skill of lifelong wellbeing.

If given the choice, we would all choose to be less stressed, to feel happier, and to experience a more optimal state of wellbeing. So why are these outcomes so hard to achieve? The answer is quite simple. No one has taught us how. It turns out that just as you train your body for fitness, you can train your mind for wellbeing. We call this Life Cross Training (LIFE XT), and Start Here is the manual for anyone seeking to achieve emotional fitness. Combining ancient wisdom with modern neuroscience from the world’s leading experts, LIFE XT is a groundbreaking training program to master the art of wellbeing. The program teaches practices proven to rewire the brain for increased focus, engagement, and resilience to stress. By offering specific practices, habits, and assessments to manage your training and by helping to build up core skills such as mindfulness, gratitude, and compassion, authors Eric Langshur and Nate Klemp lay out a thorough and sustainable program that anyone can integrate into their daily lives.

With Start Here, you will:

-Feel less anxious, distracted, and overwhelmed, and more focused
-Increase your productivity
-Feel a stronger sense of meaning and contribution
-Build stronger relationships with family, friends, and coworkers

These are benefits we all seek and can all experience by cross-training with the scientifically validated practices presented in this book. Want to become less stressed, more emotionally fulfilled, and more in harmony with the world that surrounds you? Start here.

Booklist Reviews 2016 July #1
It's an "open secret," according to Langshur and Klemp, that everyone struggles with fears, anxiety, and sadness. Stress fills our work days and harms our family relationships. To balance these emotions, the authors present a plan based on a mix of scientific research and ancient traditions dubbed LIFE XT. The program revolves around three stages (training, being, and doing) with nine fundamental practices (meditation, movement, inquiry, presence, gratitude, compassion, engagement, relationships, and contribution). Each principle is defined ("what is it"), explained ("why it works"), broken down in practical steps ("how to develop this skill"), and touted ("what to expect"). The key to success is putting these strategies into practice by resetting our emotional "set points" and forming new habits. In an appendix, the authors give detailed instructions on setting intentions and taking action. Personal anecdotes add interest to the nuts-and-bolts format. Other books have touched on these same principles, but this book does an especially good job, walking readers step-by-step through the practices, presenting achievable goals, and encouraging readers to take charge of their emotional lives.
