Do you sometimes feel stressed out or overwhelmed by life, like other people don’t always get you, or like you don’t know where you’re headed in life?

The examples above are consequences of the way you think. The good news is that you can learn to think better. Thinking is not something that happens to us — it’s a skill. Like any human activity, better ways of thinking can be learned and refined. 

In Thinking Tools (TU-CV00011, 3 ECTS), you will learn practical science-driven tools to influence and improve your thinking. We’ll examine how to reduce work-related stress by externalizing thought. We’ll learn about creative thinking and how to leverage the full firepower of your mind to get things done, whether in everyday life or your creative endeavors. Say goodbye to writer’s block once and for all, and learn what science says about crafting a good, balanced life. The course will give you insights into how the human mind works and practical tools and methods to develop yours that you can apply immediately.

The course starts on Tuesday 28th of February and registration is now open in Sisu. The course is open to all Aalto students from all schools.

This course is organized by Aalto Ventures Program, the entrepreneurship education program at Aalto University. We strive for sustainability through entrepreneurship. Get to know us more at and follow us on social media @aaltoventuresprogram to stay in touch.
