"SELF-HELP" FOR PEOPLE ALREADY ROLLING THEIR EYES.
aka how to be happy, according to science.
mmhmm and is your hypothetical arm tired from all the hypothetically aggressive hand-raising??
DOES ANY OF THIS
SOUND LIKE YOU?
You regularly bounce back + forth between boredom and stress. It’s not that you’re never happy; you are—but that version of “happy” peaks around 70%, if that.
You're annoyed that your time isn’t your own because you’re busy making a living—but when you finally have free time, you have no clue what to do with it (other than binge-watch TV shows in bed).
You like having time to yourself, but hate being alone without an Internet connection; you can only tolerate a few minutes of being completely alone with your thoughts because when you are, the persistent question sneaks in: hey—is something missing here?
Sometimes you feel confident in the choices you’ve made (i.e., education, career, relationships), but you can’t help but feel like where you’re “at” in life is somehow…not enough. If you had just done A, B, or C, you could be much further along in your career; maybe even happier, or healthier—right?
You’re suspicious of the dipped-in-millennial-pink #SelfCare trend.
(“What are you trying to sell me, exactly?”)
You want practical advice on how to be happier, but you’re annoyed by the vague, generic, entitled advice of traditional self-help books. (“How the $*@% do I ‘follow my bliss’? What even is that?”)
You’re too tired to dig into the psychology + neuroscience on your own—and feel guilty for being dissatisfied in the first place. (“Why can’t I just be grateful? I have it so easy compared to other folx.”)
YEAH, US TOO.
"just be yourself."
"pursue your passion."
"live your best life."
"do what you love, love what you do."
UHH OKAY, BUT HOW?!?
Here's the thing: to discover what we actually want out of life, we have to unlearn automatic self-censorship and relearn how to play, experiment, and take risks— by finally understanding how our brains are wired.
Find Your F*ckyeah will give you the courage, clarity, and scientifically proven strategies (yes, for real) to make that happen. And when shit hits the fan—because life guarantees that it will—you’ll have the inner resources and practical tools to get through it unscathed.
No more beating yourself up.
No more stalling, stressing, or shrinking.
It's time to take your life off autopilot.
IT'S TIME TO FIND YOUR F*CKYEAH.
WHAT THE PEOPLE ARE SAYING
the phone is a slideshow! [ooo, meta.] click through to hear about FYFY from real human beings who use the internet.
FYFY IS AVAILABLE ON AUDIOBOOK, TOO
Psst...Alexis is the narrator!
listen to a sample
OH, THAT NUMBER?
THAT'S HOW MANY DIRECT CITATIONS AND REFERENCES I MADE IN FIND YOUR F*CKYEAH.
Four hundred and seventy six.
Not, uhhh...standard for books labeled "self-help." Some would even say I went overboard with the research. But you know what? You deserve a "personal growth" book that's actually rooted in science.
So friends, what do we do when our publisher (very kindly) says we have TOO MANY scientific resources to physically print in our book?
