An employee that is engaged and flourishing in the workplace is one that is engaged and flourishing in their personal life. Using reflections and observations on behavior, this seminar will present ten tips for building the foundation for happiness. Participants will gain an understanding of the concept of happiness and discover attitudes that are more favorable to promoting a sense of happiness. They will also explore how negative aspects in life can contribute to their happiness.
Although not everyone believes in the power of positive thinking, it is a field that has been utilized by countries around the world for centuries. Today, scientists understand why the attitudinal approach–positive versus negative energy, dramatically impacts us, as well as our relationships with others. In this webinar, we will discuss our ability to benefit from the power of positive thinking by making changes to our thought process and perspective.
This webinar will teach the basic concepts of mindfulness and how to incorporate it into our everyday lives. They will engage in a short breathing exercise; exploring their world through their senses and learning how to expand their attention and focus through mindfulness practices. The goal is to incorporate these techniques into all aspects of their lives, at home, in school and when interacting with peers.
