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.

Among the team at Connecte we are always sharing our favourite or latest finds that relate to psychology whether it be articles, Ted Talks, videos, podcasts, websites, apps… We are so passionate about this practice and it so much a part of our culture here at the office that we thought maybe you’d like to be part of it too! So, once a month we will update our “picks” for you to explore what we think is great out there in psychology. Don’t forget to refresh once a month!
It’s that time of the year: new year resolutions in full swing, preparation for back-to-work, and for many…. the inevitable post-holiday blues. January can be a vulnerable time of the year for many, as we continue into winter with less sunlight, harsher weather conditions, and not to mention potentially increasing workload and pace returning from the holidays. To combat post-holiday blues and to maintain emotional health, practicing emotional hygiene is critical. Check out psychologist Dr. Guy Winch’s compelling TED talk on the importance of taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies. For further resources, also check out this blog for more tips in managing those blues. Enjoy the read and listen!

January is a time during which people reflect on the past and plan for the future. We ambitiously establish goals and take on new challenges. We feel more motivated than ever and look forward to a fresh start. However, a few months in motivation often begins to wane and our resolutions are tested. Understanding the psychology of willpower (hint: it’s a muscle!) can help shed light on this process so that we can become more effective. Check out the APA’s publication on willpower here: What you need to know about willpower.
