Newsletter Issue 53 – Feb/March 2010

Welcome to the first edition of In Equilibrium in 2010, we’ve noticed the mornings are definitely getting lighter and hopefully we’ll also have some warmer temperatures to look forward to … and not just for those lucky people who have booked a spring break abroad!

In this edition, as well as all our regular features, we introduce you to a course we have recently developed and launch our new Ask the Expert section.

Stress Management Tip

Our tip this edition concerns social relationships and offers a suggestion to anyone who would like to enhance or improve theirs.  

Ask the Expert

In our new section we plan to feature a question from one of our readers, which we feel may be of interest to others, together with an answer from one of our consultants.

Question “Do you have any tips which would help me get out of bed on the first alarm in the morning, rather than stealing another ten minutes in the warm, which is enough to throw my morning routine out of kilter?”

This edition’s answer has been provided by Dr David Mason Brown


Why are we happy? In this short talk, the psychologist and author Dan Gilbert says our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong and, supported by intriguing research, he argues that our brains systematically misjudge what will make us happy.
