The importance of fun for a resilient workforce

Research has found that positive emotions play an important, often neglected, role in our day-to-day lives. Good moods, joy, amusement, gratitude, pride, satisfaction and contentment all work to…

  • Broaden our attention, thoughts and actions
    …making us more open to new ideas, more trusting of others, more creative and adaptable, and more flexible.
  • Build our psychological resources
    …making us more confident in our abilities, more emotionally aware, more able to cope, and more able to bounce back.
  • Undo the effect of negative emotions and buffer against stress.

This explains why people work best when they find happiness in what they do. (Source: Fredrickson, 2001; 2010)
