This Funzing Experience:
Have you ever come up with amazing New Year's resolutions such as losing extra weight, starting saving up money, starting your own business, exercising regularly, changing your career, eating much healthier or quitting smoking?

You pumped yourself up with great enthusiasm and thought things are going to be very different this year. Fast forward - what happened a month down the line?

If you are like the majority of us, you've probably gone back to where you started. And that's OK. Our brains resist a sudden change for multiple reasons. Humans are the creatures of habits. We form habits subconsciously without even realising it and yet we often struggle to change them.

If you are fed up of this yo-yo effect and want to gradually create a lasting change, then you might want to consider learning how to work according to your brain rather than against it.

In this talk, Doctor of Neuroscience and Performance Coach, Gabija Toleikyte will explain why your brain resists change and will share with you brain activity based strategies on creating a lasting change.

Ticket: £12 Early Bird | £15 Standard

Venue: YMCA - Birmingham

Doors: 7pm / Talk Starts at 7:30pm

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