About the Book:
Doctor John McIntosh and Rev. Elizabeth McIntosh, authors of an important new book, MASTERING NEGATIVE IMPULSIVE THOUGHTS, use “nits” as both an acronym for their book’s title and as an analogy for the clearly unhealthy effects of negative thinking.
“Negative thoughts occur impulsively, so that is why they are Negative Impulsive Thoughts, or NITs, for short,” the authors say. “The nice analogy is that nits are also head lice and both (nits and NITs) are irritating, contagious, hard to recognize, hard to eliminate, breed fast, and spread like an epidemic.”
Unlike other, similar books that claim to have a magic route to happiness and health, MASTERING NEGATIVE IMPULSIVE THOUGHTS is based on solid clinical research, say the authors, who together have extensive experience in general medicine, medical research, and holistic health/wellness practices.

I have issues with thinking negatively about myself. Many Years of Having to hear People talked down To me has made it hard to be a confident person. It was very interesting to read their take on how to deal with these thoughts. Comparing them to nits is a very interesting take.
There were so many ways that I didn't even know that could be causing negativity. The book shows you ways with you own life to clear up the negativity. As well as cleaning up other areas to spread positivity. I will defiantly be using these in my life and while bring up my boys.
