Positive Psychology and Finding Your Purpose: Michelle Preston Webinar

Are you keen to find more passion, purpose and meaning in your life but not sure where to start? Or do you have a strong sense of purpose but you often find yourself too strained and stretched to fulfil your mission in a positive way? Then you will likely benefit from watching the recording from our recent webinar with the wonderful Michelle Preston, who is Founder of Simply Happy and Women on Purpose and is also an expert in Applied Positive Psychology. (And if you don't have time to watch the whole video then check out our list of highlights below).

  • At 2 minutes: Michelle shares examples of positive psychology helping people to find their purpose
  • At 8 minutes 45 seconds: Tips on how to stay motivated and positive once you have found your purpose 
  • At 15 minutes 30 seconds: Michelle shares some of her personal story and what purpose means to her
  • At 22 minutes 50 seconds: A short practical exercise to help you connect with your values and purpose (inspired by Action for Happiness)

#WellbeingTogether webinar series

This webinar is the second in a series of online events run by the Network of Wellbeing (NOW) exploring how we can build wellbeing together in our own lives, in our communities and in harmony with nature. We plan to interview people and organisations working on happiness and wellbeing related projects once every month. You can follow updates about the webinars via #WellbeingTogether and @NetwrkWellbeing on Twitter and by liking our page on Facebook.

Join us at the next free webinar, titled How Could Society Be Happier Beyond GDP? This will be held at 6pm GMT on 20th March - International Day of Happiness - with a guest speaker from Happy City. We will discuss their recently launched Thriving Places Index (the image above is from their launch video), which provides a new local framework of indicators to measure what really counts; namely those factors which make our communities happy, healthy and well. This webinar is purposefully being held around the 50 year anniversary of Robert Kennedy’s famous speech about the weaknesses of measuring societal progress only in terms of a growing economy.
