How to Disrupt Your Routines, Reset Your Brain, and See The World Anew

It is all too easy to become insensitive and oblivious to the world around us. Neuroscientist and behaviour expert Tali Sharot is here to help us break the habit and see the world anew.

Routines help us get through daily life, but what happens when we become so accustomed to a situation that we no longer see the good or the bad?

Exciting events, relationships, stimulating jobs and breathtaking works of art lose their sparkle after time. People stop noticing what is wonderful and they also stop noticing what is terrible. We get used to dirty air, people grow to accept authoritarianism, take foolish risks, and we are more liable to believe misinformation than ever before.

Working in collaboration with the legendary author of Nudge and Obama White House staffer, Cass Sunstein, neuroscientist Tali Sharot has produced a groundbreaking study of how disrupting our well-worn routines, both good and bad, can rejuvenate our days and reset our brains to allow us to live happier and more fulfilling lives.

What if we could find a way to see everything anew? What if you could regain sensitivity, not only to the great things in your life, but also to the terrible things you stopped noticing and so don’t try to change?
