What is wellbeing?
Wellbeing is a positive state where we feel and function well. Whatever our starting point, we can all move in this direction.
Our approach is guided by the questions what would it look like if things were going well here? and how can we make that more likely to occur? We can apply those questions to our personal lives and relationships, to teams or communities we belong to and to the larger world we are part of. The three levels of personal, social and ecological wellbeing are reflected in the three loops of our logo. Three themes we particularly focus on are:
- Resilience Training
- Sustainable Happiness
- Change-Making Skills
Resilience is our ability to withstand, deal with and/or recover from difficult situations. It includes our ability to make the best of things, cope with stress and rise to the occasion. We all have this ability, though maybe not always as much as we’d like. Research has shown that training in resilience reduces our risk of depression, anxiety and stress-related harm, while becoming better at coping with adversity helps us get more from life. With the times of uncertainty we live in, this is a much needed skill.
Our first video-based on-demand online course Personal Resilience in an Hour is available at the online platform Udemy, featuring our director and lead trainer Dr Chris Johnstone. Here’s a two and a half minute film introducing the course.
