This Funzing Experience:
Neuroscience of Surviving Christmas

Many of us have mixed feelings about Christmas - we are looking forward to them but also dread them at the same time. It might be for many different reasons - some people find the whole period very stressful - running around, buying gifts, traveling etc. Others get overwhelmed with the social interactions with relatives and friends where old behavioral patterns get triggers often bringing the worst in us.

For some of us, Christmas might bring loneliness and grief as well. And many experiences all of the above. If that is something you relate to, please come to this talk of Neuroscientist and coach Dr. Gabija Toleikyte to learn how could you deal with emotional reactions, old habits, and social interactions better this Christmas.

Venue: White Post Cafe, Hackney Wick

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Funzing Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!

Please note: this talk may be filmed for use as a short highlights video on Funzing.com & social media channels
