Why passion is important - a call to action:

Overall satisfaction with health, including mental health in the UK, is on the decline. Only 1 out of 2 persons said they were mostly or completely satisfied with their health, according to wellbeing figures from the most recent data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).  One out of 5 participants said they had experienced anxiety or depression (+7% compared to the year before). With these latest statistics, what is the solution when it comes to change in our wellbeing at work and in our lifestyles?

Passion is one answer. Passion leads to well-being and happiness. According to academic research, engaging in “happiness-relevant activities” represents one way to facilitate psychological well-being (Lyubomirsky et al. 2005).  So if passion leads to a happier and healthier workplace, why are we not tapping more into our passions? A Department for Work and Pensions survey on well-being finds that action isn’t greatly occurring: “The challenge going forward will be to transfer the well-being practices that are happening widely in public sector organisations to small, medium-sized and large enterprises.”

It’s time to take action! Join us at the Festival of Passion Conference and Leadership Summit to ignite the power of passion and do something about yours and your environments wellbeing!!
