There are many different types of people in our world. Some people like to live their lives in a traditional, conventional and comfortable way and they may see stress, anxiety, pressure and failure as things to avoid at all costs. Life can be full of possibilities, but these possibilities can seem so out of reach, so unattainable which is why many people don't even try.
The thing is, the people who tend to make the most out of their time on this Earth, the people who we all really look up to, tend to find a way to allow themselves to experience the whole spectrum of life. They have an innate desire to grow and to constantly move towards self-directed goals and a sense of purpose. Living life in this way takes courage, passion, self-awareness, self-compassion, and great relationships as no-one achieves anything on their own. Living life in this way involves a shift in perception about what makes us happy - is it really comfort or is it growth?
My background is teaching, but for the last 7 years I have become incredibly passionate about mental health, personal development, and the science behind Positive Psychology and flourishing. I have learnt things later in life that I wish I had known as a young person growing up, struggling to decide what to do with my life. Young people today are struggling with so much pressure and so many decisions that it can be hard to know which way to turn.
Positive Psychology is an 'applied science' and this scientific enquiry is being applied to education to help uncover how we can help children, teenagers and young people to flourish. The dedication and hard work of positive education psychologists means we now know so much about the science of well-being, potential, flourishing and happiness, but unfortunately this science has not yet filtered through to mainstream education. Everglow Consultancy was born to help change that.
