The Now Effect: An Interview with Dr. Elisha GoldsteinI have long been a fan of Dr. Elisha Goldstein’s work. His blog here on Psych Central is one of my favorites sources of mental help tools and advice.

A few months ago, he published The Now Effect, (our book of the month here for April) and I had the pleasure of interviewing him about it.

Therese: What is The Now Effect?

Elisha: The Now Effect is that “aha” moment of clarity and choice that we’ve all experienced. It’s the moment you notice your mind running around the same old bad neighborhoods and come in touch with the choice to refocus on what matters. It’s the moment you’re on your smartphone and your kids are clamoring around you and you realize they are what matter in the moment. It’s the moment a friend of a friend passes away and you reconnect to the ones you love.

Unfortunately, these moments are becoming rarer than ever as our lives are speeding up and life itself is becoming routine.
