  • Why do we constantly feel overwhelmed by stress, dissatisfied, and directionless?

  • Why do we feel stuck chasing and never catching our happiness?

  • Why do we seem to sabotage ourselves, hampering our productivity and success?

Evolutionary biologist Dr. Rebecca Heiss reveals the science behind the self-sabotaging behaviors that undermine our productivity, success, and happiness.

The answer lies in our instincts…

arrow right

Our instincts were developed hundreds of thousands of years ago to help us survive a world ruled by scarcity and danger. But they are devastatingly mismatched to our current environments.

We live in a diverse world of abundant choices and almost limitless connections, which means these outdated instincts now stop us from succeeding.

Dr. Rebecca offers a new approach that harnesses the power of our instincts and redirects them to work for us rather than against us. Through simple, actionable techniques, she reveals how we can rebuild our instinctive minds.

Both practical and inspiring, Instinct is a roadmap that anyone can use to finally stop living on autopilot, improve productivity and happiness, and consciously craft a better life.
