Discover how expanding and improving your mental agility - your ability to flex your thoughts, feelings, and actions—can transform your life, bolster your resilience, and foster your zest for living.

Our lives are always changing, and how we navigate these shifts shapes our happiness. Countless self-help approaches claim to have the answer, but the truth is, there is no “one size fits all” solution to dealing with the challenges life brings us. Different situations call for different approaches; the key is choosing the right one. In Switchcraft, renowned Oxford University psychologist and neuroscientist Dr. Elaine Fox shows you how to learn to choose the appropriate response to a range of situations—including when to stick at something, and when to make a change—and offers practical, flexible solutions for navigating an increasingly complex and unpredictable world.

Drawing from decades of research in cognitive psychology and the science of human emotions, the four pillars of Switchcraft—Mental Agility, Self-Awareness, Emotional Awareness, and Situational Awareness—can help you learn to move beyond a rigid mindset and adopt flexible patterns of thinking. Filled with case studies and engaging stories, useful and practical guidance—including step-by techniques to help us keep calm—activities that test our beliefs and expectations, step-by-step walkthroughs and visualizations, and interactive personal assessments to help us thrive, Switchcraft will prepare you for dealing with anything life may throw at you.
