Digital Wellbeing Series

We've teamed up with our mates at The Resilience Project to bring you a 10-part online Wellbeing Series.

The series has been created to support your mental and physical health, with tips on how to refuel when you’re feeling low, manage times of uncertainty and change, shift your mindset, exercise and more to help you build resilience and wellbeing. 

The Wellbeing Series will cover The Resilience Project’s top 10 strategies to build resilience and happiness. Each part consists of a short video and additional resources to help you implement the strategies. 

Gratitude is focusing on and being thankful for what you have got, as opposed to focusing on what you don’t have. 

Research shows that practicing gratitude has many positive effects on happiness, energy and overall wellbeing over time.

Check out the video below to hear from The Resilience Project Founder, Hugh van Cuylenberg about how gratitude can be practised in your everyday life.

Empathy is the ability to understand another person’s thoughts and feelings from their perspective. 

It’s closely linked with kindness, compassion and being there for other people.

Mindfulness is about paying attention to the present moment, it brings a sense of calm, non-judgement and awareness. 

It’s a concept that has been around for thousands of years, and there is a wealth of evidence on physical and mental health benefits.

Emotional Literacy is the ability to feel emotion, recognise and label emotions as you are experiencing them.

 It gives us the ability to explain how we feel, and immediately disarms the intensity of an emotion.

Social connection is about fulfilling our psychological needs to feel loved, validated and a sense of belonging. As well as positive interactions with peers, loved-ones and people around us, there are significant benefits to connecting with nature too.
