We make deciscions according to our reality. If our realilty is distorted/wrong, we make bad decisions that have bad consequences to our well-being. Most people have a flawed thinking process that create a distorted reality that is guided by emotional impulses. The only result is the development of an addictive lifestyle. Happiness, peace of mind, purposeful meaning become a fading dream and one then lives a life never lived. However, we are never a victim and can learn to change an unhealthy life to a healthy life, but only if we learn to create an effective thinking process. This workbook describes an unhealthy life caused by a flawed thinking process and then provides the steps for creating an effective thinking process that will result in living a healthy life.
Dr. Hammes has had an interest in the living process since childhood when several suicides occurred in the community. He taught a class in mental, emotional and spiritual health and this class helped many students make healthy changes in their life. Perhaps, this information can also help others.
