To finish this month's theme on mindsets Anouk Tuijnman will share her experience with her New Year's resolution and why this year she was able to stuck with it.
Why are mindsets important, how do they relate to (mental) health and can mindsets be changed?
It’s 2018, and January is traditionally the time when people make an attempt to incorporate new lifestyle changes into their daily routine. But who are the people who most often make successful new year’s resolutions? It all has to do with mindset.
A new year is upon us, and for many of us, this means it is a time of reflection and resolutions. No matter what changes you might want to make, you need to believe you can! Therefore this month theme is centered around mindsets, how you view yourself, your abilities and characteristics.

November is upon us, and so is this month's theme: kindness and prosociality, centered around World Kindness Day taking place on November 13th.
