WXN Summer Sizzle Series

Join our Summer Sizzle series... because sometimes, girls just wanna have fun! 

You know that feeling when you dig your toes into warm sand? When you sip a cold beverage in thezz z? When the wind whips through your hair as you cruise with the windows down? That’s summer.

It’s also the perfect time to gear up for the rest of the year. To arm yourself with mental, emotional, physical and spiritual strength for whatever comes next. To remember to do something kind for yourself, have fun and enjoy life.

In other words: It’s time to make your summer sizzle.

That’s what WXN’s Summer Sizzle is all about. Our new virtual cocktail chat series powers up your skills in the arts of grounding, resilience, nutrition, happiness and more. Plus, it’s fully interactive – meaning you’ll not only learn something new, but you’ll get to practice it, too!

So grab your favourite drink, head out to your patio and get ready to mix and mingle with our amazing WXN community of great leaders.

Session Overview: 

Happiness: The Science Behind the Smile

Happiness is an essential ingredient in a life well lived. You don’t find a happy life, you create it, and research has shown that happiness can be taught and can have positive implications on emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. As a PhD specializing in health and happiness, Gillian will break down happiness into its essential components and share cutting-edge science from the fields of cognitive psychology, neuroscience, biology, health science, her own research findings, and experiential activities to learn what contributes to long-term happiness and to teach innovative, practical, evidence-based ways to tap into and nurture happiness and success.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • The science of happiness
  • The psychology of behaviour change
  •  How to use ambiguity and change to enhance positivity in the workplace and at
  •  home
  •  Evidence-based skills to boost happiness
  •  Overcoming barriers and challenges to happiness
