I’m biased but I think that the field of psychology has a lot to offer people in terms of how to life a rewarding and satisfying life.
Over the past few years, I’ve tried to be a part of interesting and novel efforts/ projects to share the knowledge of psychology with the general public.
One of those projects is called 7 Days of Psychology and it is just about to kick off for 2019.
7 Days of Psychology is a project I do with the SA Branch of the Australian Psychological Society. Each year, for the past 3 years, we’ve released 7 new articles during Psychology Week that seek to talk about the role that psychologists and psychological research play in our everyday lives.
This year, we got a team of practising psychologists to write about what they’ve learned about living a rewarding and satisfying life.
The result is a diverse range of articles on pain management, balance in life, sustaining relationships, transitioning from study to work, mindfulness and work/life balance, expanding your comfort zone and mental fitness.
To participate, all you need to do is head to 7 Days of Psychology, enter your email and then over the next 7 days we’ll send you those articles. Whilst you are there you can access the articles from previous years.
The articles aren’t long (around 1000 words) and each has a relatively simple take-home message, something that you could starting actioning in your own life.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the authors involved this year: Jamie, Jane, John, Samantha, Claire, and Kate. Without these volunteer authors, we wouldn’t be able to do the project. So my deepest thanks to this individuals.
Please consider joining us over at 7 Days of Psychology and spend a week expanding your mind.
