Today’s high-pressure childhoods cry out for every cognitive and emotional advantage that fitness can provide, but children are staring at screens, sitting on couches, and staying inside. William E. Simon Jr. examines the greatest threat to our children’s health in America today: the deadly duo of obesity and inactivity. As a result of these perils, children today may have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. With the help of world-renowned medical experts, the author investigates the causes and effects of this health crisis and looks at recent research revealing the extraordinary benefits that physical activity confers on a child’s mind, body, and spirit. If we are to give children the healthy start in life they deserve, the author contends, schools—as the place where almost all children spend most of their waking hours—must play a greater role in teaching physical literacy and providing fitness resources. Learn why physical education is so important to children’s well-being and how you can fight the growing epidemic of inactivity in Break a Sweat, Change Your Life. Advance Praise for Break a Sweat, Change Your Life [T]he current levels of obesity and inactivity in our children have become the most fearful enemies to their health. ... Break a Sweat, Change Your Life thoughtfully and constructively addresses the health crisis today’s children are facing, calling on schools to implement adequate physical education programs at all grade levels in order to give our youth a strong start in life. From the foreword by Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, “the Father of Aerobics” Break a Sweat, Change Your Life takes a much-needed look at the deplorable lack of physical education in our nation’s schools, identifying the science behind the need for robust PE programs, as well as ways to improve the situation. Bill Simon has spent decades attempting to revitalize physical education in schools, and everyone who cares about children should read his book. John J. Ratey, MD, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain One of the best things we can do for our children is to make exercise a routine part of their lives. This is a highly readable, informative book that explains the huge physical, cognitive, and mental health benefits our children gain when we help them to stay active. Wendy A. Suzuki, PhD, Professor of Neural Science and Psychology at New York University and author of Healthy Brain, Happy Life A significant amount of scientific research has demonstrated that brains, minds, and bodies of the young all benefit from exercise. Outstanding physical education programs will give middle school and high school students the skills, knowledge, and motivation to stay fit over their lifetimes. Bill Simon makes an excellent case that physical education should be valued as highly as academic studies in our schools. Ming Guo, MD, PhD, Professor in Neurology and Pharmacology at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine Physical education means more than exercise. It means providing children with the knowledge and understanding they need to lead healthy lives through adequate exposure to the only subject in school that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit of students. Read this book, and learn what we all need to know to help grow sound minds and sound bodies for the sake of our country’s future. John Naber, 1976 Olympic champion swimmer, broadcaster, author, and speaker.

“This Is Your Brain on Joy is a thoughtful, practical, life-changing book that will help you take advantage of the latest neuroscience research—combined with biblical insights—to bring more joy and love into your life.” —from the Foreword by Daniel G. Amen, MD Author and speaker for the PBS special Change Your Brain, Change Your Life What does your brain have to do with experiencing joy? A lot more than most of us realize. In this breakthrough book, Dr. Earl Henslin reveals how the study of brain imaging turned his practice of psychotherapy upside down—with remarkably positive results. He shares answers to puzzling questions, such as Why isn’t my faith in God enough to erase my blue moods? Why haven’t I been able to conquer my anger? Pray away my fear and worry? Why can’t I find freedom from secret obsessions and addictions? Using the Brain System Checklist, Dr. Henslin explains what happens to the 5 Mood Centers in the brain when any of those areas are out of balance. This is great news, especially for those tortured by the fear that something is fundamentally wrong with them when the problem actually lies between their ears. Read this practical, easy-to-understand, and often entertaining book, and you’ll know exactly how to nourish your mind, balance your brain, and help others do the same. After all, the capacity for joy is a terrible thing to waste.
