MIND

A guide to using your mind well

Our mind has awesome powers. The way that it functions impacts how we see the world. It can take us to places both wonderful and woeful. We can be positive, negative, hopeful, hopeless – it all depends on our outlook.

It is our curiosity that inspires us to learn new things about the world, and ourselves. We will explain the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset, and see how asking questions can help us develop as a person. 

Explore the impact of positive emotions and ways to practice positive thinking and focus on the upside of the downside. With these great skills even a proclaimed pessimist can become an awesome optimist!

When is the last time you did absolutely nothing for 10 whole minutes?

Not texting, talking or even thinking? Mindfulness expert Andy Puddicombe describes the transformative power of doing just that: Refreshing your mind for 10 minutes a day, simply by being mindful and experiencing the present moment. (No need for incense or sitting in strange positions.)

We live in a busy world filled with things that distract us. Reducing clutter and getting organised are small steps we can take to reduce stress and stay on course towards our ambitions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What if someone told you to floss only one tooth everyday? Or start the new year, not with grand resolutions, but with a simple challenge.. like ONE pushup a day? BJ Fogg shows us that the key to lasting change does not lie in planning big, monumental changes, but in thinking really, really small. Chosen by Fortune Magazine as one of “10 New Gurus You Should Know”, Fogg directs the Persuasive Tech Lab at Stanford University.
