Are You Flourishing Wellbeing Workshops
Following the success of WellBeing Open Day in October, WellBeing practitioner Ulli Baxter is offering a series of mini workshops and group discussions to help you explore how you can flourish.
Session 1: Positive Emotions
Monday 20 November
Are you happy? Positive emotion is not just about a forced, superficial jolliness, while we cover up our true feelings, but is about our ability to manage our emotions effectively, to focus on and choose positive emotions and thoughts as our default way of being. Based on the concept of emotional intelligence, this session will help you to better understand how your thoughts and emotions may be keeping you stuck and how you can change this.
Session 2: Engagement and being in the 'Flow'
Monday 27 November
How engaged are you in what you do every day? Being in the ‘flow’ and totally absorbed in whatever we are doing allows us to simplify our lives, feel less overwhelmed and stressed by the amount of ‘busyness’ and pressures we face. This session will help you to explore ways in which you can be more mindful every day and how these will significantly impact on your ability to flourish.
Session 3: Relationships and meaningful social connections
Monday 4 December
Who supports you in your life? Research suggests that people who have meaningful social and personal connections with others live longer. But how to achieve this if you are too busy to work on your relationships? We will focus on how to differentiate the relationships that support you from those that don’t and what you can do to build on and create meaningful connections with others.
Session 4: Purpose and accomplishments
Monday 11 December
Do you know where you’re going? Having a sense of meaning and purpose to our lives is like a light house which continues to show us the way, particularly when we stray off course. It also helps us take pride in our abilities and accomplishments. In this final session of the series we will discuss how our values and beliefs both support and hinder from truly flourishing, and develop strategies for moving forward positively. There will be an opportunity for networking and sharing some festive refreshments following this final session.
