According to Psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus:
24 hours after learning something we forget two-thirds of it.

Last week, I went for 2 workshops, 3 to be exact but the 3rd one, I completely forgot what I learned..haha..that why I try to write it down here as much as I could on what I learned a.k.a remember from these workshop, in the hope you will get benefits from it too.

Employee Well-Being – Stress Management by  highres_458530822.jpeg

This is what I learned:

Underlying causes of stress: EXTERNAL & INTERNAL


The 5 fears that trigger stress:


3 strategies to reduce/ cope stress:



STRATEGY 2: Identify your fear, you can get the details of each fears from https://www.psychologytoday.com/intl/blog/brainsnacks/201203/the-only-5-fears-we-all-share

STRATEGY 3:  Widen your circle of control. Recognize the things you can control and cannot control.

At the end of the session, we were given

  • Causes of Stress identifier (applies more to work)
  • Stress Management Evaluation Form
  • Coping with stress activities

5 statements stood out from the Stress Management Evaluation Form and these are activities that I needed to do:

  1. Exercise at least twice a week
  2. Participate in social activities (I guess I am not social enough :P)
  3. Have a network of good friends and acquaintances
  4. Have more or more friends to confide in about personal matters
  5. Speak openly about my feeling when angry or worried

I guess that will be my 2019 resolutions 😀

What’s Your Passion?  by NLP Association (Singapore)

The 2nd workshop I attended last week, I learned:

  • My top 3 passions
  • Passion category identifier

The workshop starts with:

  1. Identify my ideal life (listing at least 10 and as much as I want + trigger questions provided)
  2. Comparing the list to find the top 3 passions
  3. Passion categories identifier
  4. Three things could do to get your ideal life

What I found:

PASSION 1: Having tons of income source that I don’t need to worry about the money again (hey, who doesn’t want that? haha) (WHAT)

PASSION 2: Having a healthy body & mind (WHAT)

PASSION 3: Having people support without me asking/begging for it (WHO)

Passion Categories Identifier:

  • WHAT – What we do that makes us in love the things we do
  • HOW – How we do the things make us in love with the things we do (the details)
  • WHY – Why we do it
  • WHO – Who you do it for – it can be for the environment eg. plastic bans

You can try it too, maybe you able to find your ideal life by doing what you passionate about! Cheers!
