WEBINAR SERIES: Building psychological strength and emotional resilience!
Episode 2: Mental health and well-being in COVID-19
This installment discusses some of the psychological factors we can expect to play a role in our thinking, behaviour and emotions over the coming weeks.
Some of the key takeaways from the webinar include:
|•||we need to understand the overlap between psychology and neurology to empower us in our pursuit of wellbeing|
|•||The mind is hugely powerful, through its 86 billion ‘laptops’, in helping us build the kind of positive emotions we want for wellbeing|
|•||the subconscious mind pays more attention to negative messages than positive ones|
|•||the mind thus has a bias for negativity and it takes effort to focus on the positive|
|•||we need to maintain a “three positive for every one negative” ratio for us to achieve a psychological state of wellbeing|
We set a challenge with the key question: what will your positivity ratio be during the lockdown?
Finally we consider positive activities to improve our positivity ratio during this time.
