Read this week and am now re-reading an amazing book called Mindsight, by Dr. Dan Siegel:
It is a fascinating look at defining what the mind is and how our brains work, through the study of a field called interpersonal neurobiology. Your brain is part of your mind yes, but the mind is also *relational*, and so understanding about your connection to others and how they make you feel is also part of how your mind works. A very different perspective on mental health as it aims to define what makes a healthy mind, rather than pathologizing what might be going on in our inner world. A little new agey but a lot sciency. I really found it quite helpful.
Check it out if you are into reading about that kinda thing:
