Positive psychology, as opposed to popular psychology, actually has a science behind it.” A qualified coaching psychologist, Lyons is one of a growing troupe of psychologists in this country who earn a living from helping people assess, understand and leverage the value of their emotional intelligence. “Emotional intelligence should be seen as a model of well-being and high performance, based on knowing yourself, connecting with others, handling stressful situations and making better decisions. The term “emotional intelligence” has been knocking about since the 1960s, but became mainstream in the mid-1990s after the bestselling book by that title, written by Daniel Goleman.

The Why of Work | The RBL Group 4 ways to develop exceptional resilience Unlock the key to mental toughness that flies in the face of traditional thinking. When we resolve to be more resilient and mentally strong, we often adopt a militaristic “tough it out” approach. That is, we believe the more we put our noses to the grindstone and endure, the stronger and grittier we’ll become. Picture: a Marine slogging through the mud, or a football player dusting himself off to make one more play. However, Shawn Achor, world-famous speaker and author of The Happiness Advantage, has found a key to mental toughness that flies in the face of traditional thinking. “Resilience is how you recharge, not how you endure,” he revealed in a post for Harvard Business Review. His research found that the traditional method for developing grit — “toughing it out” — often has the opposite effect, resulting in burnout, insomnia, and $62 billion (yes, with a “b”) of lost productivity every year.

Fig. 1 Means of well-being for the experimental and the control condition at the time of the first and the second post-tests, adjusted for well-being at the pre-test. Abstract Objective Self-management ability (SMA) is the ability to obtain those resources necessary for the production of well-being. Methods A bibliotherapy was developed to increase the SMA of slightly to moderaterly frail older people, and to help these persons to sustain a certain level of well-being. Results The bibliotherapy resulted in a significant increase in SMA and mastery compared to the delayed-treatment control condition, and for SMA, this effect still existed 6 months after the intervention. Conclusion The current findings show that it is possible to counteract an age-related decline in well-being, even with only slight to moderate levels of frailty. Practice implications

Equine Ulcers – You Really Need To Know More! | Dr. Kerry Ridgway Ulcers in the digestive track are more than just the latest “disease du jour.” Thus far, for a problem that has been recognized for about 20 years, we are still seeing and understanding only the tip of a metaphorical iceberg. More than two thirds of the iceberg is still not visible and much is still being discovered about this ulcer “iceberg.” We do know that there are, basically, only two kinds of horses – those who have ulcers and those who will have ulcers! We should all recognize that gastric and intestinal ulcers are literally a slow or non-healing acid burn – a burn such as if hydrochloric acid was splashed on your face. Therefore, the real purpose of this paper is three fold. Twelve Good Reasons to Understand GI Ulcers in Horses: When horses develop painful and restricted movement associated with excess muscle tension, and poor ability to use the spine – resulting in pain – they cannot perform at the desired level.
