What is the THRIVE © Approach to Wellbeing?

Fountain of Health’s THRIVE © Approach to Wellbeing is a unique integration of key findings from scientific research on wellbeing, brain neuroplasticity, resilience, preventative medicine, and behaviour change. The program was developed by Dr. Keri-Leigh Cassidy in collaboration with other international experts and national contributors.

Does the Fountain of Health™ approach work?

Tested in over 1500 people, 80% at least partially achieved a goal and reported improved wellbeing in just 4 weeks.

The THRIVE © Approach includes six high impact actions known to promote wellbeing:

Thoughts: Positive Thinking

It turns out, your thoughts are a key to good health. Due to brain "neuroplasticity" your brain is changed by your thoughts and actions. Learn more about the power of thinking!

Health Habits: Physical Activity and Healthy Eating.

Physical activity is one of the best ways to promote brain “neuroplasticity” and to improve health and mood. Healthy eating is a key ingredient for wellbeing, at every age!

Relationships: Social Activity.

Having positive relationships are important for wellbeing. Connecting with others improves mood, and supports brain health across the lifespan.

Interest: Brain Challenge.

Did you know challenging your brain with mental exercise is as important as physical activity? Engaging your mind with your interests promotes brain health and wellbeing.

Valued Goals: SMART Goal-setting.

What matters most to you? Set a “SMART” micro-goal to do something meaningful to you. When your actions line up with your values, wellbeing and happiness grow.

Emotions: Taking Care of Mental Health.

Taking care of your emotional health is vital for wellbeing. Notice your feelings, manage stress, get enough sleep and take care with substances like alcohol.
