Mo Gawdat’s Guide to Stress-Free Living

With Alice Law

Drawing on the latest neuroscience, the Google [X] tech pioneer, bestselling author and No. 1 podcaster Mo Gawdat is here to help us manage the stress pandemic.

‘Everything he writes is an enlightening education in how to be human.’ – Elizabeth Day

Mo Gawdat spent thirty years as a tech leader, including serving as Chief Business Officer at Google [X], Google’s ‘moonshot’ factory of innovation, before turning his brilliant engineering mind towards the subject of human flourishing, meeting and learning from the world’s wisest people. Inspired by and in honour of the tragic death of his son Ali, Mo poured his learnings into the international bestseller Solve for Happy, where he shared a formula for happiness that can be learned and adopted by all.

Now he returns to How To Academy with collaborator Alice Law to take a deep dive into the science of managing chronic stress. Mo and Alice sincerely believe that chronic stress is not an inevitable and unavoidable part of modern life, but a predictable – and therefore preventable – response, often as much to do with negative thought patterns as external circumstances.

In this live event, Mo will explain how he made it through the most acutely stressful times in his own life, and touches on the idea of post-traumatic growth – both on a personal level and in response to huge events that affected all of us, such as the COVID pandemic and subsequent economic turmoil.

This is an unmissable chance to build up the skills to manage stress no matter your circumstances, backed by neuroscience and accessible psychology.
