 The Top Five “Science of Happiness” Podcast Episodes…

Scientific studies have shown that 50% of our individual differences in happiness are determined by our genes, 10% by our life circumstances, and 40% by our intentional activities. This one-hour session will introduce participants to some of the research-based “happy habits” they can adopt to increase their levels of happiness and well-being.

Session #4:  T
he Art of Relaxation

Date:  Wednesday, April 12 2023

 New Study Shows Short Relaxation Techniques Reduce Mental And Physical  Stress

Today’s life is fast-paced and leaves little time to relax and decompress. Greater pressure is being put on all of us to do more. The result is that many of us have lost the ability to sit still and simply be with ourselves. This session will explore personal stress triggers and review some practical, easy techniques to make brief relaxation moments a natural part of everyday life.

The Working Mind

The Working Mind (TWM) is an evidence-informed program which is based on the Road to Mental Readiness (R2MR) developed for the Department of National Defence by a team of clinicians and peers. The content offers education that may help to increase mental health awareness and literacy, as well as reduce mental health stigma and discrimination. We hope that increasing mental health awareness and literacy will help to support an increasingly psychologically safe culture here at the University of Regina. After completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate indicating their trained status.

The Working Mind Objectives:

  • Reduce the stigma around mental illness
  • Promote your organization’s mental health
  • Transform the way participants think and talk about mental health and mental illness
  • Help participants identify poor mental health in themselves and others
  • Give participants for coping skills to manage stress and poor mental health
  • Review mental health rights and responsibilities
  • Create a more supportive work environment

The Working Mind course offers easily applied scenario-based lessons, videos that feature people with lived experience of mental illness, reference guides, and practical handouts.

TWM for employees offers practical knowledge to increase participants’ overall comfort level with mental illness. On completing the course, employees will be able to:

  • understand mental health and mental illness
  • recognize its signs and indicators, in themselves and others
  • reduce stigma and negative attitudes toward people with mental health problems
  • support colleagues with mental health problems
  • maintain their own mental health and improve their resilience.
