About Unlock and Create Space for Joy

Today’s health statistics and current environment make a strong case for taking stock as we go into the holiday season, especially after all the changes we have managed through over the last two years. Join us in this webinar that will explore what influences our thinking and responses to change, why we struggle with balance in our lives and provide solutions we can put into practice.

Have you thought about the differences between joy, happiness and other significant emotions that are part of the human experience? Can you translate that understanding to positive change that sticks in your workplace or personal life? Why care about the differences? Because your long-term mental health depends on it. Joy is part of the secret recipe for human thriving and long-term wellbeing.

Our speaker, Kim MacDonald, will challenge you to think differently about joy, stress and work. With very few exceptions until a few years ago, psychological science and positive psychology has largely neglected the systematic study of human joy. Today we know more; about its importance and how to shift behaviour and thinking. We can’t however talk about joy and work without talking about stress. We will dive into that relationship. We know it is essential for our overall health, personal motivation and to help us stay alert to what is important in life. But that doesn’t mean it is easy to deal with or even to understand.

In the session, we will explore stress at work, sources of joy and provide tips to move you toward better balance and space for a new perspective.”
