The Awesome Human Project is a book that you DO, not just read. It includes:

  • Nataly’s proven science-backed 5-week program to boost your emotional fitness
  • Bite-sized neuroscience lessons so you can learn to be the boss of your brain
  • What awesome leaders do differently and why it matters
  • Ways to get rid of guilt around self-care for good
  • An “SOS” section to help you get out of the Valley of Struggle
  • Nataly’s wildly popular Notes to Self with inspiration to support your progress
  • Talk Back to Your Brain scripts to quiet (ok, shut up!) your inner critic and doubter

“… a gusto-filled guide … and cheery but down-to-earth approach to emotional wellness.”

The Awesome Human Project abounds with simple, practical tools to build emotional fitness, learn to embrace ourselves (and our awesomeness) wholeheartedly, and to leave the “shoulds” behind so we can joyously revel in the “coulds.”

- Melissa Bernstein, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Melissa & Doug

What a gift to humanity! I can't stop reading it.

- Bonnie Kintzer, President and Chief Executive Officer, Trusted Media Brands

An inspiring blueprint sharing Nataly’s compelling personal journey and tactical ways to redirect your mind towards meaning, purpose and fulfillment.

- Tiffany Shlain, Emmy-nominated filmmaker, founder The Webby Awards & Bestselling Author of 24/6: Giving Up Screens One Day a Week to Get More Time, Creativity and Connection

Just like practice in sports, The Awesome Human Project is hard work but rewarding. Nataly is there like an awesome coach, dusting us off when we stumble, giving us encouragement and motivation, and supporting us on our next attempt.

- Jonathan Becher, President, San Jose Sharks

The Awesome Human Project is a generous and practical guide to letting go of struggle and being your best self — from someone who truly understands what it means to build a happy life from the ground up.

- Ingrid Fetell Lee, Author of Joyful and Founder of The Aesthetics of Joy

We’ve somehow been convinced that a life of busyness and struggle is the only way to live. Through self-care and self-compassion, The Awesome Human Project shows us another way is possible.

- Jen Fisher, co-author of Work Better Together

Part self-help, part science, and part workbook, The Awesome Human Project offers the perfect combination of tools to help any busy professional step away from the overwhelm of everyday life and chart their way out of the chaos.
