On the 26th day of February Patricia Oana, Romanian volunteer from SFERA Macedonia presented a workshop about Positive Psychology, in Red Cross Bitola.
In this workshop Patricia started making a visualization activity, about a goal the participants would like to achieve and trying to imagine the reactions if it was truly achieved. Patricia explained that achieving something in reality begins with achieving it in our mind. She continued with the explanation of the mind as a placebo effect, related to science.
Patricia told also the importance of gratitude, the law of attraction, what Buddhism and Physics have to do with psychology, the scientific benefits of positivity, the barriers to positivity, how to be creative and not reactive. Patricia said that there isn’t failure, just experience, that we can always improve and that we shouldn’t hide behind positivity.
The workshop finished with some final activities and book recommendations.
