Author Dr. Jay Kumar's New Book 'Science of a Happy Brain: Thriving in the Age of Anger, Anxiety, and Addiction' is a Thought-Provoking Work From the Happiness Professor

The recent release "Science of a Happy Brain: Thriving in the Age of Anger, Anxiety, and Addiction" from Page Publishing author Dr. Jay Kumar is a unique program created and synthesized from both timeless spiritual wisdom and recent advances in brain science. It is a model for achieving sustainable happiness that draws the best from two realms of human inquiry—science and spirituality.

Dr. Jay is a renowned public speaker and thought leader whose expertise spans brain science, behavioral health, economics, politics, culture, and religion. He is also the inaugural Director of Contemplative Practices & Wellbeing at Chapman University in California. Dr. Jay’s latest book “Science of a Happy Brain: Thriving in the Age of Anger, Anxiety, and Addiction” reveals tantalizing secrets behind the brain and explores the mystery of the human condition.

Dr. Jay writes, “What is happiness? Is happiness even realistic for you to achieve in today’s world of rising anger, anxiety, and addiction? It’s the fundamental question I (your Happiness Professor) yearned to discover in the wake of a life-transforming family tragedy as a young adult that led me to the halls of academia and holy ashrams to explore the science and spirituality of happiness.” 

“Science of a Happy Brain” is adapted upon actual lessons from Dr. Jay’s popular university Happiness course that he has been teaching for the past seven years. From millennials suffering from anxiety to folks in Middle America struggling with addiction, from veterans battling PTSD to parents coping with the challenges to raise children hooked on technology, from the spike in suicides to the tribalism and hate in today’s world, Dr. Jay guides readers on a journey of exploration and discovery that empowers them in building a Happy Brain.

The latest research in brain science points to one undeniable truth—to socialize is to survive, to tribe is to thrive. “Science of a Happy Brain” uncovers a long-forgotten aspect of humanity by exposing a shared element of human biology—one’s social brain. Only recently has science affirmed what religions knew all along—humans are social beings with social brains that are nourished and strengthened by community and connection.

In his latest book, Dr. Jay is expertly positioned to discuss a wide range of topics relevant to both self and society that apply insights relating to brain science, spirituality, and happiness, such as:

·         The Brain Evolved for Survival not Happiness: Overcome the brain’s built-in “negativity-bias”—that keeps one in perpetual “survival mode” and hijacks happiness—by strategically applying “The Four Cs of Happiness”: Comfort, Contribution, Connection, and Compassion.

·         A Happy Brain Is a “Social Brain”: Explain why science now emphasizes the importance of the “Social Brain”—the functional feature of neurobiology developed over millions of years of evolution that empowered humans to become the superior species—and why the “Social Brain” remains the hidden key to humanity’s happiness.

·         Disconnected in an Over-Connected World: Learn how to overcome the pervasive, growing “loneliness” epidemic—driven by widespread “digital addiction”—that ultimately sabotages happiness by leaving people feeling “disconnected in an over-connected world.”

·         Parenting in a Turbulent Time: Discover how to bridge brain science and spirituality to equip children with the “3Rs for Success: Readiness, Resilience, and Reflection” in school and in life.

Dr. Deepak Chopra shares: “Science of a Happy Brain” brings up several issues that both plague society and provide hope for the future. In modern society, which seemingly provides everything that one would believe one needs, isolation and despair seem to rule. Dr. Jay Kumar gives some tantalizing thoughts, based on novel science results, and makes the case that happy brains might be the answer to both personal and societal issues that seem too complex to tackle.
