Positive wellbeing is a state of mind; and in this talk participants are invited to gain a deeper understanding of how the Mind can be used for, or against, ourselves. Throughout life we are taught to cram new information into the mind, but rarely are we taught how to use our mind more effectively for our own wellbeing. This talk offers several practical approaches that can be practiced to improve peace-of-mind, boost self-esteem, and calm the system down thereby reducing stress and improving overall wellbeing. Participants are also given time to look at work-life balance to help them to identify the areas they need to focus on.
Material covered includes:
- A Mindful Minute
- Work-Life Balance exercise
- Understanding The Impact of your Thoughts
- Staying calm with Self-Talk
- Relaxation to end
The focus of the talk is on increasing understanding and teaching new skills so that each participant leaves with practical tools they can use immediately in their own life and work.
