Past Meetings
Can we be happier at work?
 - 3 August 2017

This was the theme for this months discussion. In this fast-moving and entertaining TED Bloomington talk from psychologist Shawn Achor he argues that actually happiness inspires productivity. We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? 


Work is a huge part of our lives. Most of us spend more of our waking hours working than doing anything else, so it’s obviously good if we can enjoy our work. But sadly, many of us find our working lives to be stressful, frustrating, confrontational or uninspiring.

In this session, we explored how we feel at work and how this relates to our performance. Are happy workers just laid-back underachievers or are they actually more creative and productive? Do happier organisations get better results? What really affects happiness at work? And are there things we can do to make our workplaces and working lives better?

New Malden Fete - 8 July 2017
 
 
 
 

Renowned author and Emotional Intelligence expert Dan Goleman
Explores the latest scientific research about Mindfulness and how we can apply this to live wiser lives and contribute to a happier world.
This talk is available at our weekly Mindfulness Group Meeting from 6th July until 10th August 2017

In May, on Thursday 4  the evening meeting was on ‘Gratitude’ led by Andy Sinclair. Click here for a copy of the Gratitude PDF of Andy’s excellent presentation. This includes the video reference for the introduction by Professor Brene Brown on the relationship between joy and gratitude "one of the most important things she found in 12 years of research!" Further Reading and Film references are also included.  


We are inspired to be a hub where people can connect and share inspiration together.
As Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness, says "These local connections hold the key to happier lives and a happier society".
