Dr Gabija Toleikyte, PhD, is a neuroscientist, lecturer, author and performance coach, who completed her PhD on the neuronal basis of memory and navigation at University College London (UCL). In this session, Gabija shares the fascinating science of how the brain changes across the lifespan, and practical neuroscience-based insights for making behaviour changes that last, and realising more of your potential.
Gabija’s first book: Why the F*ck Can’t I Change? was published in January 2021.
This episode is sponsored by our upcoming Day on Burnout Online Conference, taking place on February 27th, 2022.
Burnout is a state of mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion, affecting 57% of the UK population. If it’s not managed properly, it can lead to feelings of detachment, cynicism, and ineffectiveness – many of the symptoms associated with clinical depression. Recent years have seen sharp increases in those experiencing it, with one survey reporting a 9% increase in 2021, compared with pre-Covid numbers in 2019.
So for this event, we’ve brought together three world-leading experts who will share with you:
— Science-based strategies for working with burnout and compassion fatigue (Françoise Mathieu)
— Dopamine: the secret mechanism underlying almost all addictive behaviour, and how to get it to work for you, rather than against you (Dr Anna Lembke)
— The Productivity Trap: why we have to stop, and how a healthy amount of ‘doing nothing’ can lead to heightened levels of creativity, wellbeing, and a more fulfilling existence (Professor Josh Cohen)
By attending live, you can interact with the speakers in the Q&A sessions, connect with like-minded participants during the conference, get CPD certification and lifetime access to the recordings from the sessions.
