Do you have a Growth Mindset or Fixed Mindset? Wellbeing and Resilence for May
“Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.” - Thomas Edison
The mindset we bring to our actions matters – a lot! In the 1980s Carol Dweck and her colleagues became interested in students' attitudes to failure.

Wellbeing and Resilience for November, Anger and Irritation, and what you can do about it
Anger and irritation are a completely normal part of the range of human emotions. They alert us that something is wrong – perhaps we feel threatened, or we see a personal value we strongly believe in being broken by another, or we are afraid. And while it is perfectly normal to sometimes feel irritation and anger, if we don’t know how to understand and look after these emotions productively we can get carried away by them, they can become habitual, and we can act in ways that are harmful to ourselves and others.
