The EQ of Well Being

The EQ of Well Being


If we allow the environment to take charge of our happiness, we may find ourselves unhappy for most of the time. There is some good news though. Positive psychology has researched happiness in depth and proven what the mystics of old always knew – that our long-term well-being, happiness and joy is indeed an inside job. This requires that we consciously take charge of our well-being through specific conscious living practices and as we do so our energy levels, creativity, productivity, and ability to cope with the stresses of this environment rise. Shawn Achor, a well-known positive psychologist terms this “The Happiness Advantage”.

In this short course which comprises Modules 5, 6 and 7 of our Full Course ‘Manage your state of Well-Being’, you will explore why we get it wrong when we look to the environment for our happiness and you will be provided with conscious living practices which are scientifically proven to enhance your long term well-being.

For more information please click on the “what’s in it for me” tab.

This course can be taken on it’s own but I would suggest you first complete ‘Thriving in Uncertainty’, ‘Thoughts help us Flourish’ and ‘The Drama Game’ to yield maximum results.

I do look forward to being with you in one of our courses soon, and until then, take care and stay aware.
