"So many people want to reinvent their lives but they get totally stuck. Alexis Rockley breaks down the science of how that happens, while providing readers with the tools to break through the self-sabotaging sh*t that’s holding them back. Want to start living a kick ass life on your terms? Start here."
☑️ You regularly bounce back + forth between boredom and stress, only to level out at a vegetative, exhausted state. It’s not that you’re never happy; you are—but that version of “happy” peaks around 70 percent; a fleeting state of satisfaction at best.
☑️ You find yourself 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 life 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 want practical advice on how to be happier, but you’re annoyed by the vague, generic advice of traditional self-help books. (“How the $*@% do I ‘follow my bliss’? What even is that?”)
☑️ You’re suspicious of the dipped-in-millennial-pink #SelfCare trend. (“What are you trying to sell me, exactly?”)
☑️ 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.”)
...Yeah, us too. ✋
"In a world of constant distraction, Alexis Rockley’s great new book provides the very necessary tools to cut through all of the noise and find the calm that we are all so very much in need of. To that I say, F*ck Yeah!"
Despite everything society says, you are not a living brand, you do not have to have one passion/purpose/calling, and no amount of #SelfCare is going to change your life.
In Find Your F*ckyeah, Alexis Rockley uses guided scientific experiments and refreshing wit to prove why the one-size-fits-all success formulas and trendy morning routines won’t sustain our happiness—and shows us how to find what will.
Rockley tackles the social programming and biological defaults that fuel our limiting beliefs head on, showing how they keep us trapped in a cycle of boredom and stress. In our attempt to present a hireable, friendable, dateable, and acceptable version of ourselves to the world, we spend much of our lives unintentionally censoring who we really are—and in the process, shoving what we truly want deep into our subconscious.
For anyone tired of feeling the pressure to be better, do more, and work faster to find happiness—to self-optimize, shut up, and fit in—Find Your F*ckyeah offers the tools to finally take our lives off autopilot and find joy where we’re at, right now.
"Alexis Rockley brilliantly marries science and soul to create the message: You matter. The specific combination of genetics, environment and experience that makes you who you are has never happened before and it will never happen again. So don’t f*ck this up. Find your f*ckyeah."
