WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Spring 2019

Once again it was a great pleasure to welcome students from the Positive Psychology spring semester course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia to take part in my  “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study.

We have explored various aspects of the subjective time experience, individual differences in time perspective and how to apply in practice our research results about how to achieve the balanced time perspective and what are the actual benefits of having this particular time perspective.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | PSYCHOLOGY OF TIME COURSEs, DIS | SPRING 2019

This Spring semester of 2019 I was taken by surprise with two sections of my course “Psychology of Time” that I’m teaching at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. Overall I have 50 students, who are interested in the subject matter! It’s super exciting that students find this topic interesting and decide to take the course! “Where is My Time” workshop becomes an integral part of the course, when students discover their temporal profiles using various instruments and techniques. My current studio space is not that large to host groups of 23 and 27 students, but we did our best to fit in and I think we had good time while working on the “My Time Collage”.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Fall 2018

Right after my birthday, I was running the my “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study for the Positive Psychology fall semester course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia.

It is always very interesting what perspectives the students bring with them to this workshop. We talked about my experiences when working with people with various temporal perspectives and applying our research results about how to achieve the balanced time perspective.

WHERE IS MY TIME WORKSHOP | Positive PSYCHOLOGY COURSE, DIS | Summer 2018

Exciting summer day it was today – I was invited to run my “Where is my Time” workshop as a field study for the Positive Psychology summer course at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. We had a great time exploring own temporal profile, collaging and then reflecting on it, discussing how it can be linked to the state of flow, concept of flourishing, but also what is a balanced time perspective and how to achieve it with simple exercises and techniques.

Where is My Time workshop for Karriere Coach, Aarhus |April 2018

Another super exciting adventure during the Danish Research Festival was to be invited to Aarhus. I was invited there with my “Where is My Time” workshop by the Karriere Coach, a consulting company that works with helping people to figure out possible career and competence developments.

It was a nice workshop for both the coaches and participants of their various development programs.

We had very nice discussions after the workshop both with the coaches, diving more deeply into the theories behind the workshop: the time perspective approach and some contradictions within positive psychology.

Another participant has also took me a bit around Aarhus to see some hidden treasures of the city. It was a great experience overall!

Where is My Time Workshop for the Danish Court Administration | April 2018

It was super exciting to have been invited by the Danish Court Administration | Danmark Domstole Domstolsstyrelsen to run my “Where is My Time?” workshop as part of the Danish Research Festival. It is a teaser, 2 hour workshop. It won’t allow for new skills to be developed, but it is enough time to have some reflections over how we see and operate in time.

It was a great workshop, many interested and engaged people took part in it!

Where is My Time workshop | Psychology of Time course, DIS | Spring 2018

Today I was running the “Where is my Time” workshop as part of my “Psychology of Time” class at DIS: Study Abroad in Scandinavia. Over the course students explore their own temporal profile, the take a test, but also complement the results with other measures, they make an interview with their temporal opposite and also venture out to change their dominant temporal perspective for a few days. So I’ll be looking forward to reading their reports later in the semester about it.

Creativity as a Resource – workshop at PWN – Copenhagen

This past Tuesday, I had the pleasure together with Jennifer Bruder from Brain Dialogues to host our Creativity as a Resource Workshop for the Professional Women’s Network, Copenhagen chapter.

It was a very lively and cozy forum with 12 professional women from all over the world, who eagerly tapped into their creative side that evening. In just 3 hours we explored a wide range of issues, such as how to become more efficient, less stressed, and more creative with our daily tasks.

We have experienced how framing and limiting time can be a tool to boost creativity – it helps to cut out our inner censor and place all of our focus on the process of creation itself.

We stressed that creativity is a skill that can be trained, much in the same way you train your muscles. Thus, it follows, you do need to make time to be creative. The good news is, by giving ourselves 10 minutes a day, we can greatly build on our creative skills and our creative brain. There is no need to look for special days, nor a special atmosphere in order to get into the creative mode. Establishing a daily 10-minute routine will make an enormous difference to your energy, mood and to the quality and novelty of your ideas.

We have also traveled through time during the workshop – tapping into our past experiences and positive emotions, through relaxation and meditation, drawing the inspiration from these experiences and creating something new in the present moment. And we have imagined a few alternatives, some very short sketches of the future possible self. We know that techniques designed to tap into your memories, your emotions and your real and imagined experiences enhance the creative process. Mindfulness is an excellent tool to get this going.

We had a wonderful time and we were so thrilled to feel the inspiration and energy flowing in the air throughout the evening!

If you’re curious to experience your own creative energy, build the creative muscle, and gain motivation for establishing your own creative routine firsthand, we are offering a longer, more in depth course beginning on November 13th. We will meet once a week for four weeks and we would love to have you join us.

Looking forward to exploring creativity together with you!
