WHAT IS THE BOUNCE BACK PROJECT?

The Bounce Back Project is a unique collaborative of physicians, nurses, hospital leaders, and staff who have come together for a single purpose — to impact the lives of individuals, communities, and organizations by promoting health through happiness.

Numerous studies have shown using simple tools to help us retrain our mind to focus on the positive can increase feelings of well-being and decrease feelings of depression. These tools can also open us to the possibility of greater social connections, improved sleep, enhanced memory, and stronger immune system function. It’s simple… and life changing.

Learn more about the Bounce Back Project and how it got started by watching a few of our videos.

“I loved hearing your presentation in June and it really stuck with me when you explained the impact gratitude and random acts of kindness have not only on the recipient, but also on yourself!! This has truly stuck with me and when I have been in a “funk” I have since tried doing something nice for someone else or showing my appreciation for that person, and it always makes me feel better. My family has also incorporated the “3 good things” into our dinner or bedtime conversations and it has been really neat to watch this progress!” — Jacquie W.
