About this Event

Agar and Dr Vikki Barnes are delighted to join forces to deliver this exciting new workshop on ‘How to be Happier’.

Mental health problems are costing UK employers £33 - £42 billion each year and 12.5 million sickness absence days are attributed to mental health conditions. Happiness programmes see a 51% reduction in staff turnover and a 66% reduction in sickness absence. That’s why so many businesses are now putting the happiness of their people at the top of their agenda.

Happiness is something that humans share a desire for and something we all aspire to. In a culture of mental ill-health, happiness loses our focus and attention if we don’t make time for it. In this workshop, Dr Vikki Barnes explores what it means to be happy, the role of the brain and neurochemicals that help us to feel good and the exciting new scientific model of Positive Psychology.

Together we will explore that happiness doesn’t have to be difficult. It doesn't even have to take long to reach. In fact, the path to happiness is within us already, we just need to know where to put our efforts. There are many well-researched, evidenced-based techniques that can be woven into our day to day work and personal lives. These are simple and effective ways to become the best versions of ourselves.

This is an informative and interactive half day session, with the aim of finding new and fun ways to embed positivity in our lives, our relationships, our wider communities, organisations and cultures. We will do this by practicing a positive, growth mindset and learning strategies that are simple, enjoyable and meaningful.
