A simple initiative to amplify human connection and mental wellbeing in a world of social distancing.
We are tribal animals, and our ability to not only survive but to thrive has long depended on our social networks and what we invest in them. Positive social connection is scientifically proven to make us happier and healthier. According to the work of world-renowned happiness researcher, Shawn Achor, positive social connections reduce anxiety, improve our ability to focus, and also bolster our immune and cardiovascular systems.
In a world where anxiety and loneliness were already on the rise, where human connection was becoming a luxury, and where social distancing is now the new norm, we have an opportunity. An opportunity to intentionally invest in ourselves and each other, to make human connection a practice and our mental wellbeing a priority. With so much fear flooding our feeds our aim is to provide a template to cultivate connection, kindness and hope to shape a better tomorrow.
Does every day at the moment feel like a struggle? Do you wake with the intention to make the most of your time, then beat yourself up at the end of the day when your to-do list still appears full? Pre COVID-19 you prided yourself on your productivity and how organised you were, and now it feels like you can’t do anything right and it’s seriously impacting your MOJO.
The objective of the Fear(less) Mini Masterclass is not to teach you how to get rid of fear - that’s neither possible nor ultimately desirable. Our aim is to put fear on the table, normalise it through honest conversation, and use it as a lever for enabling courageous action on what matters.
