Well-being As A Skill
In this short lecture video, Richard Davidson, founder of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, talks about the four constituents of well-being and how we can practice it as a skill. Neuroplasticity, or the brain’s ability to adapt and learn, responds to life events and helps us grow. By practicing four components our brains and our wellness can improve. Resilience in recovery from adversity is part of well-being and helps protect us from difficulties. Outlook, or attitude, is another skill we can develop, and he discusses a research study about the practice. Attention is the third aspe...
