In this session we will explore the different mental states we experience throughout the day, week and month and consider the impact that they can have on us, including our wellbeing, our productivity at work and maybe our relationships with others around use. We’ll draw on ideas from reversal theory (Apter, 2018) to understand these mental states, the reversals we do (or don’t experience) between them and how we might manage our mental states for our personal benefit. The aim is for participants to leave with some practical ideas that are easy to implement they can try out for themselves.
