• Positive Psychology Meetup #7: The Art of Self-acceptance

    Eiffel Bistro & Bar

    Do you accept yourself? It might sound like an odd question; after all, what does it even mean to accept yourself? Don’t we all accept ourselves as a regular part of living our day-to-day lives? As it turns out, self-acceptance is not an automatic or default state. Many of us have trouble accepting ourselves exactly as we are. It’s not so hard to accept the good parts of ourselves, but what about the rest? Surely we shouldn’t accept our flaws and failures? In fact, that’s exactly what we should do! Join us this Thursday on a journey of self-discovery with like-minded people to explore the topic of self-acceptance and learn some practical strategies for a more fulfilling life and relationships with people around you! And we'll back you up with some science of Positive Psychology! [[ Purpose of the meetup ]] To help you find the ultimate happiness & fulfillment in life with a science-based approach. This MeetUp focuses on happiness, wellbeing, flourishing, what makes life worth living, achieving goals, self-discovery, positive impact on others, building positive communication and relationships, resilience, mindfulness, flow and engagement, meaning, playfulness, strengths and positive emotions. [[ Facebook Group: ]] https://www.facebook.com/groups/303432277014860/ [[ Who is it for? ]] Do you miss that deep conversation you couldn't have with your friends because they are interested in very different things?

  • Positive Psychology Meetup #6: How to Forgive & Let go

    Eiffel Bistro & Bar

    Forgiveness can be challenging, especially when the offending party offers either an insincere apology or nothing at all. However, it’s often the healthiest path forward, allowing us to acknowledge the wound, understand the other party’s perspective, and process our emotions in non-hurtful ways. Forgiving another person is one thing, but what happens when we commit the offense ourselves? It’s important to take responsibility for mistakes, but intense guilt and shame aren’t good for anyone in the long run. Have you found it hard to forgive others? Have you found it hard to forgive yourself for the mistakes in the past? Do you always keep that hatred / anger / revenge in heart? And has it been helping you or destroying you in the long run? And most importantly, how to let go? Find your answers this Thursday by joining us in an eye opening discussion with a group of like-minded people, with a bit help from science of Positive Psychology. [[ Purpose of the meetup ]] To help you find the ultimate happiness & fulfillment in life with a science-based approach.

  • Positive Psychology Meetup: Selfishness v.s. Altruism

    Have you ever met anyone who is very selfish? Is it OK if we are selfish? Or why is selfishness not acceptable socially? What problems may arise if we are all selfish? What's the difference between selfishness and self-caring / self-love? On the other hand, why do we need altruism? Isn't it conflicting to self-care? How do we balance our own benefits (selfishness) and others' benefits (altruism)? How do we balance caring for ourselves and caring for others?

  • Positive Psychology Meetup #4 : Rise and Shine with Your Talents

    Do you think success depends more on handwork or talents? Could you imagine who you would become if you found a hidden talent or super power in yourself and used it to excel your life to a level that nobody else can catch up with? Sounds too good to be true? According to the dictionary, a talent is a natural endowment of a person. It is an ability or natural capacity that we have, which may range from our creativity to our athletic abilities. We all have them, but we are not always so good at identifying what they are. Sometimes they can be right in front of us, and we miss them. If you can determine what your talents are, you can tap into an amazing resource that can help you in every aspect of your life and career, and it makes your progress and achievement come true so much more easily. When you know what your talents are, you feel more in tune with your life. You can also use those talents to excel in career and business world. Whether you leverage those talents in your product, service or jobs, or you use them to network and make quality connections, they are important to know. When you capitalize on your talents, your work no longer feels like work, it just feels like living. And anything that makes business and life more enjoyable is bound to be a good thing. So are you ready to uncover your hidden talents? Do you want to know how to do it scientifically? Join us this Thursday to find your answer with a group of like-minded people with the help of positive psychology. Expect an evening of exciting topics, interactive group exercises, exchange of thoughts.

  • Positive Psychology Meetup #3: Search for the Meaning of Life

    D18 Irodaház és Kávézó

    Meaning of Life ? What?! You kidding me? Do you feel it's such a big but empty topic whenever you talk about it? Do you find it to be only a vague idea - you kind of know what's your meaning of life, but can't really have a firm hold on it ? Do you find this concept too far from everyday life, so you can't really do anything specific on a daily basis to pursue it? Do you think you will never understand the meaning of life, or you can only understand it at the end of life? Or do you think there is no meaning in life at all? Here is the good news if you have similar questions: science of Positive Psychology already solved this smilingly big philosophical puzzle for us and provided us tools / formulas / theories to make this big concept very easy to understand and very easy to apply in our daily life.
