Humans can only grow and develop by upping their behavioural flexibility. Shifts in mindset can only happen when we’re shaken up by new experiences. But how can we expand our behavioural repertoire when our unconscious brain is a habit machine designed to turn us into couch potatoes?
Psychologist Professor Karen Pine, co-author of Flex: Do Something Different, describes how making small positive changes can trick the brain into shifting gear. And how Do Something Different uses digital technology to help individuals and organisations unleash richer, more stimulating ways of living and working.
