Synopsis

Attention to detail is great – perfectionism is a curious habit. Chocolate is awesome – using it to treat anxiety is a curious habit. Honest self-awareness is admirable – constantly beating yourself up is a curious habit.

We have habits for a reason, we repeat things that feel good and move away from the stuff we don’t like. Our habits solve a problem and make life easier. Unfortunately, our habits can turn on us. This book teaches us how to use curiosity as a superpower. It takes the blame and shame out of habit change so that we make the change not because we HAVE to, but because we WANT to.

Drawing from the collective wisdom of evolutionary biology, neuroscience, Stoic philosophy and even Instagram, leading mindset coach Luke Mathers helps us embrace the power of curiosity to recognise when habits start to impact negatively our health and happiness.

Curious Habits offers an entertaining, thought-provoking and non-judgmental exploration into why we do the things we do, and how to reset for a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.
