This book gave me knowledge about so much more than just the brain. It has a clear layout with calming colors that worked positively on me. After reading this, I applied all the tools and I’m now much more aware of my pitfalls, how I can find balance, and how I can handle stimulants. Because of the way the knowledge is shared I have a clearer idea of how all the processes in the brain and body work and how everything is connected. This way, I can be a better version of myself. – C

Unfortunately, I ended up at home with burn-out symptoms a while ago. I was always running around, never took rest and was always ‘on’. I got this book as a gift from a friend. It was so comforting to read how everything in your head works, how one thing influences the other. Some things were so logical but I just never looked at them that way. I’m so happy I got this book and it really attributed to my understanding of the ‘why’ and also what needs to change in order to prevent the same from happening in the future and to get back on my feed now. 🙏❤️ – Marlies

When my physiotherapist brought up this book in conversation I immediately bought it after. What a read, I flew through it in a few days! It reads nicely and Charlotte writes it all down in such a way that you don’t have to read it twice. For me, this book is a huge step towards a calmer and less strained brain and body. I definitely recommend this one (I already mentioned it multiple times in conversation with friends and family)! Charlotte, thank you for this wonderful book! ❣️🙏 – L.v.B.

What an amazing book, well written, informative, and extremely interesting. Our brain is such a special and amazing organ. I think it’s a beautiful thing that we can do so much to support or brain. I’m going to work on it. Thank you Charlotte for the nice insights and your supplements, of which I’m also a fan. – E

The book already caught my attention a few times at the bookstore, which made me decide to buy it. My expectations upon seeing the title ‘Unstrain your Brain’ were completely different from what the book turned out to be, but it was so interesting I finished it in one breath. What an amazing read! The information of the book is clear and complete and exactly what I needed at that moment. Very special! I’ll definitely explore this further. 🙏✨❤️ – Jell

I read this book after it was advised by my physiotherapist, who coached me for a year because of my long-covid. Charlotte describes the exact lifestyle that I want to follow and keep. Everything I’ve learned in the past five years, is here described in one book. Everything you need to know for a healthy and fit lifestyle is in there. Amazing! – Danielle Koopman

I’ve read more stuff to get in better shape but in this book you will find (almost?) all aspects that will help you to feel better and all symptoms caused by our hectic, always-on life are discussed, and if you follow the tips, you will truly start to feel better! Promise! 💞 – D.P.

An amazing addition to all earlier books of Charlotte Labee. Scientific information is shared in an accessible way, which makes it easy to understand and an enjoyable read. Next to that it’s nice that there’s a lot of practical tips, which makes it easier to apply certain things within your own lifestyle. Everyone should read this book! 🧠🙏 – Z.d.

I’ve been a fan of Charlotte Labee for years; because of i.a. diet, exercises and growth mindset I’ve become a different person; this book is the cherry on the pie! Explained clearly and with useful exercises. This should be used in schools too, if you asked me. Thank you Charlotte! 💘 – J.H.

Your 10 week guide to a more balanced mind.
