Exploring the Psychology of Well-Being
During October's Healthy Workplace Month, a panel discussion was hosted with three renowned psychologists from the University of Guelph’s Centre for Workers’ Health and Well-Being, who shared tips and strategies for individuals to improve their personal well-being inside and outside of their office walls.
Panel questions included:
- How would each of you define well-being?
- What are the top three factors that feed into well-being at work?
- How might these vary according to individual circumstances? (e.g., individuals at work, individuals’ interactions at work, workplace structures and dynamics, groups that people belong to, etc.)
- What are some false beliefs (or erroneous strategies) that people often think will improve their personal well-being?
- What do we need to focus on in order to enact positive change for our own well-being?
