Why I Love Working at SuperBetter: the Resilience of Silliness

| 3 Comments

What did your last remote meeting look like?

Here’s oursand it’s just one of the many reasons why I love working at SuperBetter.

At SuperBetter, Resilience, play, and game fulness aren’t just concepts that we promote. They’re truths that we live as a business and as individuals. When communication turns strained, when the future looks dark and unknown, or when we’ve got to push through a crunch-time challenge, we return to the basics of Resilience.

  • We spread Social Resilience by giving hugs and sharing our gratitude for what each one of us does each day and by awarding each other Achievements in the game. We know that a dose of silliness can do wonders for social connection and creativity.
  • We tend to Emotional Resilience by expressing our needs, excitements, and concerns openly. We shift out of negative thinking and into positive thinking using Power-ups, gratitude, and realistic optimism. We laugh. We don’t take ourselves too seriously.
  • We activate Mental Resilience by practicing mindfulness, staying curious, and making our current challenge as fun as possible how can we turn this rough patch into an exciting challenge? How can we stay present with what’s happening rather than jumping to conclusions?
  • And we strengthen our Physical Resilience up by sharing healthy meals, challenging each other to Power-ups and Quests, and going on fun adventures together.

We do these things because Resilience isn’t something that we either have or we don’t it’s a practice. It’s made up of the little things we do each day that make us laugh, foster a sense of connection, activate positivity, and get our hearts going. Those little things add up to greater health, pleasure, strength and flexibility—which sounds pretty good to us.

What one little thing you do that makes you smile, laugh, feel good, or feel strong? Post it in the comments below then make it a Power-up in the game!

  1. Great break: practicing handstand! Turn the world upside down!

    When will we have Superbetter as Android? I’d pitch into Kickstarter! Pleaaaaase?

  2. I have collected very cute baby animal pics & have a board on Pinterest called Awww pics.
    If I need to reconnect to that warm n fluffy place I just flick through my Awww pics.
    I’m with HansG – Super Better for Android would be awesome – even if it was just an abridged Activity List that could sync with Google Calender so they would turn up as tasks in the agenda for the day 😀

  3. I can hardly wait until th eSupr Betteris better and i can play.
