"The Pleasure Trap is about the nature of your own struggle for healthy living." This little book is an in-depth psychological study into why we act the way we do and why we make the choices that continually wreak havoc on our daily living.
The authors discuss "the motivational triad" and how we are driven and controlled by this phenomenon. We humans are programmed to seek pleasure, avoid pain and do it, with little or no effort. Certainly nothing wrong with this, as these are natural goals for all living creatures. But, because we demand instant gratification, we can get into a lot of trouble. Oh the rewards of pushing those “magic buttons!”
The Pleasure Trap reminds us of how easily we fall prey to temptations and can quickly stray from the wellness-minded path to health and fitness. The authors describe in detail the relationship of the chemical stimulations of brain to the food and drug pleasure traps. But, have no fear because the book offers us the ways to avoid the pleasure traps of life and the specific actions to take so that we stay on track.
