Happy Hacks for More Positivity and Productivity Amidst the COVID Craziness
About the Session:
Key Learning Objectives:
Throughout 2020 our lives have been bombarded with negativity, stress, and countless threats to our emotional well-being, work, and closest relationships. Unfortunately, this negativity easily seeps into both our personal and professional lives. An outdated solution suggests if we focus more and work harder, we will be more successful, and then experience more happiness. New research in neuroscience and positive psychology shows that it works the other way around. Improving positivity and happiness turns on all the learning centers in the brain and fuels positive outcomes in all aspects of our lives. Drawing on his Positivity Pyramid and using humorous examples and stories, Dr. Dave provides simple science-backed “Happy Hacks” to boost both our positivity and productivity as well as our mood and attitude at home and at work.
- Participants will have a better understanding of the three essential human needs and why it is important to meet these needs regularly for themselves and those they work with.
- Participants will learn about common barriers that distract them from their ability to focus on positivity and personal well-being.
- Participants will learn simple science-backed principles and practices and commit to implementing one or more of the “happy hacks” into their own lives to improve personal well-being – starting today!
Seats are limited! Reserve your spot! The session will be recorded and posted to the Webinar Library.
