How can the desk in front of you reveal a whole new perspective on your life?
What's so important about refusing to board the catastrophe train?
Why does the anti-rotting agent given off by plants make you feel great?

Through 18 short chapters, Aidan Harvey-Craig scours every corner of psychology - from neuroscience to psychodynamics - to uncover the unexpected secrets of hacking your wellbeing. Based on the latest research, each chapter takes you on a journey of surprises, guiding you through an abundance of deceptively simple ideas which will help you to see your world in a new light and improve your wellbeing.

Organised into three sections - 'Notice', 'Energise' and 'Connect' - each hack addresses issues that affect us all, including our sleep, relationships, stress, identity, and our dependence on smartphones. Intertwining the latest insights in psychology with practical and easy-to-use advice, this book offers new ways to empower yourself and tackle the challenges of growing up and studying in the 21st Century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book simply explains what the hack is, how to put it into day-to-day life and the psychology that explains why it works. -- Isaac, Student, University of Manchester
A must read for anyone who wants to learn to be accountable for their own success and wellbeing. -- Gilda Scarfe, CEO and founder of Positive Ed Ltd, International Speaker
Aidan Harvey-Craig has brought his experience of working in psychology and education to produce this highly informative and thought provoking book. It is packed with evidenced-based life hacks, provided in a refreshing format. I may not be a student, but I've taken away many life hacks from the book that I'm now using. Highly recommended! -- Kirsty R. Lowe, Consultant Clinical and Forensic Psychologist. UK
This is my kind of book! It's evidence-based, easy to read and so practical. This book will prove so useful to students. A book that will help them understand themselves and the people around them better, as well as equipping them with the tools they need to thrive. -- Adrian Bethune, award-winning author and wellbeing advisor
