Council has partnered with Lift Lifestyle Medicine to offer The Lift Project Sunshine Coast.

The Lift Project Sunshine Coast is an evidence-based online wellbeing program that draws together the latest research from Neuroscience, Lifestyle Medicine and Positive Psychology. Presented by internationally recognised wellbeing expert Dr Darren Morton, the program explores ten wellbeing-enhancing topics over ten weeks of lessons with an emphasis on improving your mental wellbeing.

The Lift Project Sunshine Coast is available free to current residents of the Sunshine Coast Local Government Area. 

Please share The Lift Project Sunshine Coast Flyer[925KB] with family and friends so that we can 'lift' as many lives as possible. 

About the lessons

The lessons are comprehensive and explore the science around each week’s theme. Lessons are easy to understand and designed to be both fun and educational. They provide you with the strategies. This helps to manage stress and anxiety to better deal with challenges and to improve vitality, resilience and life satisfaction. The lessons are suitable for EVERYONE and will take you on a scientifically proven journey to lift your mood and your life - both of which are needed in these unprecedented times! 

Once registered, each week you receive an email and link to a short video lesson together with a weekly challenge to put into action what you have learnt. You are encouraged to write down your learnings and reflections from that week in an e-journal and share these learnings with the program's private Facebook group and your friends and family.

Each lesson takes approximately half an hour to complete and topics include:

Week One:  Your Limbo is listening – learning about the ‘emotional brain’
Week Two:  Motion creates emotion – why physical activity is so important
Week Three:  Blue and green should often be seen – the importance of being outdoors
