The Lab of Life method: Serious Science

We make use of scientifically proven techniques to bring about an effective change in behaviour. The Lab of Life method was developed by renowned behavioural scientists from Radboud University in Nijmegen, under the auspices of Prof. R. van Baaren. So, it is not a spiritual quest, but hard work. Not a recipe for happiness, but control over your life. Not temporary inspiration, but lasting results.

The aim of the training is to evoke lasting behaviour change. Because of this, all – 2 hours - sessions consist of individual assignments in which you as a participant translate your values and goals to practical and sustainable changes in your daily lives. At the end of the training you will have concrete plans to maintain a healthy work-life energy balance. To guarantee lasting results, personal learning goals and a vitality strategy are entered into an online environment that continues to support participants following the completion of the training.

Be aware: every session only lasts 3 hours (17.00-20.00 hr)

Session 1: Personal balance analysis, April 3rd, 2019

What does your daily life look like now and what would you like to change? During the first meeting we have every participant map out their energy level and work-life balance.

Session 2: Mental and physical energy, April 17th, 2019

What are your energy needs and what circumstances affect your energy balance? During the second session we teach participants to recognise mental and physical signals and resistances, and they learn to apply this knowledge to situations in their daily lives.

Session 3: Working from qualities, values and goals, May 8th, 2019
What do you find important in life? What are you good at? How can you realise your personal goals? During the third session participants get a broader view of their fundamental qualities, values, and goals in order to orient their daily lives towards them.

Session 4: Personal vitality strategy May 15th, 2019
Which old habits have you been able to change, and what behaviours have been difficult to adjust? During the fourth session participants learn to identify and break through bottlenecks and problematic patterns, and subsequently how to increase their self-efficacy.

Session 5: Evaluation and maintenance May 29th, 2019
What have you learned and achieved during the training? How can you anticipate and prepare for future challenges and possibilities? During the last session participants analyse their progress and create a maintenance strategy for the future. This is essential to achieve sustainable changes in behaviour.
