Grow Younger Daily: An Insider’s Guide to the Life-Changing Use of Imagery
The phrase “Mind over matter” takes on new signiﬁcance when linked to research into the undeniable connection between imagery and physical and mental health. In other words, if you can imagine it, you can become it. Athletes, dancers and ﬁ tness experts have used sophisticated mental imagery to enhance their performance, and now you can too.
The Franklin Method, developed by author Eric Franklin, combines movement and Dynamic Neurocognitive Imagery (DNI)™ to harness the transforming power of the mind to move efﬁ ciently and keep the physical body young and energized. With the power to change the body from the inside out, imagery can inﬂ uence and rejuvenate everything from individual cells to the immune system and organs, showing that remaining young is largely a question of attitude.
Grow Younger Daily provides a roadmap to creating lasting positive physical and mental changes by describing how to harness the plasticity and transformative power of the mind, thanks to the author’s decades of ﬁ rsthand experience and practice. Acknowledging the power of change is the ﬁ rst step to a younger, healthier you.
