Happier Thinking

Want to change your inner voice?

The most important conversations are the ones you have with yourself in the secret of your mind. And if we want to fix our inner unhappiness, we need to understand what causes it. At this special event, bestselling author Mo Gawdat will share his guide to beating negative self-talk and retraining your brain. Inspired by the life of his late son, Ali, he's developed a model for happiness based on generosity and empathy towards ourselves and others. Mo's unique insights can help you transform your inner voice to become more nurturing. Drawing on his knowledge of programming and neuroscience, Mo will explain how our brains behave and what we can do. He'll share his "user manual" of recommended exercises and ideas to reshape your mental processes and help you create more happiness.

This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at a live Action for Happiness event on the 5th of July 2023.
