WELCOME TO HEALTHY THINKING


Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes the downs are small things, sometimes big things, but research has shown that it isn’t the events themselves that have the greatest influence on your emotions, it’s the way you react to events. Your mind is an incredibly powerful tool for improving your wellbeing. You don’t have to rely on good things happening to you, you can discover the good anywhere we look, if you choose to.
This section contains any handouts from the Optimise Your Potential Programme related to Healthy Thinking and additional resources if you would like to explore any areas in more depth. Be sure to check back often as we will keep this section updated as new research and tools come to hand.
