Our aim at Connecte is to bring the science of Psychology to everyone. Why? Because it’s fascinating and oh so helpful! Psychology is the science of how that little machine in our head “the mind” works and how it connects to our body and everything around us. With our solid research backgrounds, keen curiosity about how people work and our experience in multiple domains of psychology including Clinical, Social, Health, Community and Positive Psychology our aim is to cut through the hype that’s out there to bring the best science-based principles to you.

Disordered eating might be more common than we think, but that doesn’t mean it’s something to overlook. The attached article emphasizes that disordered eating may look like a normal range of eating, making it easy for family and friends to miss important cues that suggest a loved one is struggling. However, missing these cues may delay diagnosis, leading to lost opportunities for effective treatments before the disorder takes over more space in their lives. Check out this article for some tips on what to look for and how to be helpful: Recognizing Eating Disorders in Time to Help.
Looking for a fun way to foster a growth mindset in the little ones in your life? I was, and recently discovered the Big Life Journal; it’s a colourful (and fun!) tool developed for kids. The introduction encourages little ones to do some of the exercises with a “journal buddy” so the journal is a great tool for building resilience and confidence in kids, and the exercises allow you to connect with your child in a meaningful way. The creators of the journal also offer some free growth mindset printables for children on their website; you won’t regret checking this out!
