From the book jacket:

Learn to love yourself by rewiring your brain with this accessible guide from the bestselling author of Be Bold and host of the Do You F*cking Mind? podcast.

Thoughts and moods are chemical reactions in your brain that you might think you are powerless to control. But modern science has shown beyond doubt that changing your behaviour and thought patterns can rewire the neurological pathways of your brain to literally change how you think, feel and view yourself.

In The Neuroscience of Self-Love, Alexis Fernandez-Preiksa takes the theory out of neuroscience and gives you practical tools and exercises to create a new self that is happier, more balanced and less dependent on others for validation. By re-engineering your habits, optimising your decision-making, curbing negative thoughts and harnessing the power of exercise and meditation you will become more centered, connected and creative, and learn how to trust, prioritise and truly love yourself.


At this meetup, we will discuss Fernandez-Preiksa’s expert insights on how we can improve our relationships with ourselves and how these ideas may relate to our own lives. Love the book? Hate the book? No time to read the book? You’re all welcome!

Looking forward to seeing everyone 😎
