Research shows 2020 was one of the unhappiest years on record. Sadly, science also shows negativity sticks in our brains like velcro, while positivity slips away like soap. While we can’t always control our circumstances, Dr. Dave will share some science-backed happy hacks for boosting positivity and productivity.

Psychological Sustainability through the Reservoir Theory. Just as we want our community’s reservoirs filled up each spring and summer, it is essential to have our emotional reservoirs filled up to get us through the winters of our lives. Many in our community are feeling drained due to school, work, parenting, relationships and the additional pressures of COVID-19. This interactive presentation will provide a visual framework to help you check-in with yourself and make helpful changes to effectively manage the drains in your life.
