My forthcoming book
HOW TO WINTER

FO9p42vVQAAuft2.jpeg

My first book, How To Winter: Harnessing Your Mindset to Embrace All Seasons of Life, blends cultural insights and observations from around the world with evidence-based strategies to help you embrace winter, in all its dark, icy glory. Along the way, my book also explores how learning to cultivate a more positive mindset about winter is really a tool for leveraging the power of mindset in any challenging season of life. 

How To Winter will be published by Penguin Random House in the US in Fall 2024.

Research

Research

Mindsets have the potential to influence not only our psychological well-being, but our physical health as well. My research seeks to understand and harness the power of mindset to improve health, wellbeing, and performance. By understanding the power of mindset, we can improve our ability to help us do everything from managing chronic illness to finding the opportunities in winter. 

Writing

I'm dedicated to helping people live fuller, happier lives by writing about psychology research transparently, honestly, and compellingly. Psychological research has the power to transform our lives - but only if we can access it.
