Supporting Psychological Wellbeing in the Workplace

Learning to Thrive in Work and Life

The Challenge

Within life today, there is an increasing level of complexity, with many different competing challenges and demands in everyday life that we all must navigate through.

Many of us are constantly rushing around and thinking about what is next; so much so that we fail to notice or experience the here and now.

Psychological flexibility describes our ability to recognise and accept our thoughts, feelings and emotions, focus on living in the present moment, and take action that is guided by our values. This is very important to our emotional fitness and mental nimbleness.
