Cultivating a positive mindset - 1-day workshop | Haptivate | Monday, 13. July 2020

Everyone experiences negative thoughts. It’s a normal part of being human – but we can make a choice about whether to accept these thoughts or challenge them.
Where negative thoughts are left unchecked, our well-being can fall into a downward spiral.
But noticing negative thoughts when they arise and recognising them for what they are – just thoughts – creates the opportunity to break cycles of negativity.
Using simple interactive exercises, this workshop will help you unlock the ability to replace a negative thought with a positive one – a life skill that can significantly impact personal well-being and motivation for the better.

What are the benefits?

Deal with challenging emotions more easily
Improve your self-esteem
Feel more motivated
Become more empathetic and connected to others

What does the course cover?
1. Understanding thought patterns and negativity bias
Discover how thoughts originate and how thought cycles work within the brain. Explore the brain’s innate bias towards negative patterns of thinking and the impact that negative thoughts and self-beliefs can have in your daily life.

2. Detaching from negative thoughts
It’s easy to get caught up in our thoughts but actually, we have the power to choose which ones to engage with. We'll show you simple and effective tools you can use to identify and make sense of your thoughts and emotions. Using mindfulness exercises, we'll practice observing, witnessing and accepting thoughts rather than being controlled by them.

3. Creating healthy thought patterns
Neuroplasticity enables us to retrain our thinking into more positive patterns. Explore science-based techniques including gratitude, compassion, big picture thinking and letting go to cultivate a more positive and healthy mindset.

4. Building resilience with re-framing techniques
Developing a positive outlook can help you to bounce back more quickly from adversity. We’ll explore this through group work and role play activities, taking common life challenges and re-framing them in a more positive light.
