Making minds happier; Inside and outside of work.
Uprise is an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that combines multiple wellbeing initiatives into a single, easy to use platform for HR and employees. I has an app available for employees to use in a self-guided way, as well as coaches and therapists for EAP sessions.
I am part of the Uprise clinical team, and regularly present webinars on mental health related topics.
This webinar deals with the topic of mental threats: how do mental threats arise, how do they influence us, and what can we do to manage them so the negative effects of these threats are not too serious.
A number of mindfulness-based and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy based tools are offered to manage our own reactivity.

It just shows you perspective can make all the difference
10% of our experience of happiness can be attributed to external factors (money, goods, location, environment, resources, etc); 90% is dependent on how our brains (read: we) process life around us! So all the stuff we’re doing “in order to be happy” only works on 10% of the effect.
Moreover, increased levels of happiness lead to increased levels of success across all life areas; increased levels of success hardly lead to increased levels of happiness overall. And guess what we focus on most, usually. Being more successful in order to be happy.
It’s so fascinating to realise we’re nearly constantly doing things that cancel out the result we’re aiming to achieve -or have little or no effect on what we’re trying to achieve.
We’re working life backwards.
Increasing our levels of happiness ideally is the aim. The rest will then automatically follow (or we will be happy regardless of achieving it, as happiness is an inside job).
I love Shawn Achor’s research (and his presentations; he’s funny!). He’s one of my positive psychology heroes.
