The secrets for a happier New Year will be shared soon with Paisley & District U3A members. Guest speaker, Val Bissland explores how to develop a positive outlook and create greater enjoyment in life. As an experienced psychology tutor at the University of Strathclyde’s Centre for Lifelong Learning, Val also welcomes questions at the interactive monthly zoom meeting at 2pm on Thursday 7 January.
U3A chair, Kathy O’Donnell said: “Life hasn’t been normal since the pandemic began and this has taken its toll on our emotions and mental health. Some older people seem to deal better with uncertainty than others and part of it is down to coping mechanisms. So we decided to find out how members could boost their own happiness during 2021. Val Bissland will explain how helpful choices can make us become emotionally resilient.”
“We often overlook our mental strengths. Positive psychology has identified many ways we can soothe our anxieties and become a bit happier. I’ll talk about some strategies that seem to work well for most people”, Val remarked.
