*Part of The Collection - can be read without reading the previous books* Casey and Nate are back! High school senior Casey Donovan is in trouble. Again. If only she had trusted in Nate's loyalty when he traveled to Spain with his college basketball team - despite being accompanied by the cheerleading squad and Fiona the Floozy who'd made it super clear she wanted Nate for herself. Then she wouldn't have made that impulsive trip to Hollywood and let Austin do that stupid thing that threatened her relationship with Nate, and triggered a trip into the past. Only something is wildly wrong. She's not in the 1860s like she should be. It's 1929. And she didn't come alone. **Completion of story arc in book 6 - Clockwork Crazy.

Most researchers suggest that shift rotation in a forward or clockwise direction produces less disruption of circadian rhythms than those that rotate in a backward or counter-clockwise direction. This is based upon extrapolation from quasi-experimental studies of shift-workers and research on the effects of jet lag, which indicate that westward travel results in less disruption of circadian rhythms. The effect of direction of rotation on cortisol, melatonin, and core body temperature was examined in participants randomly assigned to either a clockwise or counter-clockwise shift rotation. Twenty-eight participants worked a day shift (0800-1600) for one week followed by either a clockwise (n=14=14-- ) or counter-clockwise (n=14=14) shift rotation for two weeks. Participants wore a flexible rectal temperature sensor for the three weeks of the study and were allowed to remove the sensor for 90 minutes each day. Saliva samples were collected at the end of the baseline week for later assay for melatonin and cortisol, and were time-locked to collection times during the two "shiftwork" weeks. No group differences were found for cortisol for either of the workweeks. The clockwise group, however, had a significantly greater increase in melatonin during the early morning shift, compared with the counter-clockwise group. Finally, the analyses of core body temperature revealed a significantly lower amplitude and a delay of the acrophase for the counter-clockwise group during both weeks of testing. while cortisol levels did not appear to differ based on direction of shift rotation, there were inherent differences with melatonin secretion and core body temperature. Precisely why such differences exist remains unclear but may be similar to that seen with circadian resynchronization during westward travel. Furthermore, it is not clear if these differences would persist in individuals exposed to longer periods of shift rotations.

If we could turn back the clock psychologically, could we also turn it back physically? For more than thirty years, award-winning social psychologist Ellen Langer has studied this provocative question, and now, in Counterclockwise, she presents the answer: Opening our minds to what’s possible, instead of presuming impossibility, can lead to better health–at any age. Drawing on landmark work in the field and her own body of colorful and highly original experiments–including the first detailed discussion of her “counterclockwise” study, in which elderly men lived for a week as though it was 1959 and showed dramatic improvements in their hearing, memory, dexterity, appetite, and general well-being–Langer shows that the magic of rejuvenation and ongoing good health lies in being aware of the ways we mindlessly react to social and cultural cues. Examining the hidden decisions and vocabulary that shape the medical world (“chronic” versus “acute,” “cure” versus “remission”), the powerful physical effects of placebos, and the intricate but often defeatist ways we define our physical health, Langer challenges the idea that the limits we assume and impose on ourselves are real. With only subtle shifts in our thinking, in our language, and in our expectations, she tells us, we can begin to change the ingrained behaviors that sap health, optimism, and vitality from our lives. Improved vision, younger appearance, weight loss, and increased longevity are just four of the results that Langer has demonstrated. Immensely readable and riveting, Counterclockwise offers a transformative and bold new paradigm: the psychology of possibility. A hopeful and groundbreaking book by an author who has changed how people all over the world think and feel, Counterclockwise is sure to join Mindfulness as a standard source on new-century science and healing.
