Agar and Dr Vikki Barnes are delighted to join forces to deliver this exciting virtual event –  continuing our series of ‘how to’ virtual workshops

‘We all know that times are strange; Coronavirus is changing everything that is familiar to us’ – Insights Thought Leadership, March 2020

Times have, indeed, been strange and the resulting impact on our wellbeing is well- documented.

The restrictions designed to prevent the spread of coronavirus are having a profound impact on the way we live our daily lives, and in turn, on our mental health.’ – How has the coronavirus impacted our mental health, Mind, June 2020

Happiness is something that humans share a desire for and something we all aspire to. In a culture of mental ill-health, happiness loses our focus and attention if we don’t make time for it. In this series of workshops, Dr Vikki Barnes explores what it means to be happy and the role of the brain and neurochemicals that help us to feel good; they are based on the cutting-edge science of Positive Psychology.

Together we will start to explore that happiness doesn’t have to be difficult. It doesn’t even have to take long to reach. In fact, the path to happiness is within us already, we just need to know where to put our efforts. There are many well-researched, evidenced- based techniques that can be woven into our day to day work and personal lives. These are simple and effective ways to become the best versions of ourselves. And we know that happy people create thriving organisations.

This is an informative and interactive 1.5 hour session, with the aim of finding new ways to embed positivity in our lives, our relationships, our wider communities, organisations and cultures so that we are able to ‘stay connected’. We will do this by practising a positive, growth mindset and learning strategies that are simple, enjoyable and meaningful.

You have exactly one life in which to do everything you’ll ever do. Act accordingly.’ – Colin Wright

​There comes a time in each of our lives when we begin to ponder what it’s all about. We ask questions like “why am I doing what I do?” and “what’s the point of my job?” When tough times arise, we can find it difficult to keep a sense of optimism and meaning for the things that we do (including our work but also aspects of our personal lives too). A healthy sense of purpose helps you to put things in perspective, to refocus on the things that are meaningful to you, and to move ahead with direction and enjoyment in life. Your sense of purpose or meaning is the motivation that drives you toward a satisfying future and the best version of yourself in the now.
