Boost Your Mood with Positive Psychology

Find a balance between physical and psychological wellbeing

Weight loss isn’t just about diet, exercise, or the way your body looks – it's also about the way you feel about yourself and the way you look at the future. Our Wellbeing Boost innovation adds another enhancement to your CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet program: the power of positive psychology.

With this enhancement we complete our Total Wellbeing approach to health and weight loss: a balance between physical and psychological wellbeing.

physical wellbeing can be achieved with healthy diet, physical activity, weight management, health check-ups, and psychological wellbeing can be achieved with kindness, gratitude, journaling and connectedness

Why positive psychology?

Psychological and physical wellbeing are closely linked: if one suffers, the other suffers too. To stay motivated while on the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet, we believe having a positive view of yourself and your future can help boost your results and wellbeing.

The CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet relies on science, not trends, and this new wellbeing component is no exception. Following research-based evidence, we’ve created a three-pronged approach to wellbeing: Kindness, Gratitude and Best Possible Self.

With the new enhancement to our program, we have created simple ways for you to practice these techniques with bespoke online tools that help you work on your daily mood, motivation, and view of the future. Practicing these techniques in combination with eating better and staying active can be a true game changer for your overall wellbeing.

The tools we offer

As a member, you're free to choose which techniques you want to practice. Some may want to try all, some may want to focus on just one but we highly recommend you give it a try if you choose to become a member of the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet!

Following research-based evidence, we’ve created a three-pronged approach to boost your wellbeing:

  • Kindness – compassionate acts are proven to improve wellbeing
  • Gratitude – being thankful for what you have can increase happiness levels
  • Best possible self – focusing on a positive future can boost your optimism and motivation levels

Using the new online tools in the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet program, you’ll be able to record your happiness progress and work towards a more positive view of yourself and your future.
