Wintertime Mindset: Norwegian Strategies for Enjoying Winter
What can Norway teach us about how to not just survive the winter, but to thrive during winter?
The Wintertime Mindset Webinar is an interactive, research-based workshop developed and delivered by Stanford health psychologist Kari Leibowitz to help individuals cultivate a mindset for loving winter. In the webinar, participants will learn about how mindsets play a powerful role in health and well-being, and how to harness their mindset to enjoy the winter season. To translate these insights into action, participants will be guided through a series of interactive exercises to help them cultivate a more positive wintertime mindset, combined with specific suggestions to support well-being in any season.
This webinar combines Kari's experience living above the Arctic Circle in TromsÃ¸, Norway with her PhD researching the power of mindset to provide evidence-based, psychological insights for well-being. Shedding light on how a small shift in mindset can make a big difference, Kari provides concrete strategies for learning to see winter as a time of joy and opportunity.
