Dear parent/carer my name is Martina Herbert,
I am currently studying for a Masters in Health Psychology in NUIG. Having worked as a nurse for a long time I am interested in studying ways to increase well-being and reduce stress for carers/parents and I am looking for a number of people to take part in a study.
It involves answering a questionnaire about your age, gender, health and emotions. Some volunteers will then be asked to do a simple exercise taking 5-10 minutes daily which involves thinking about 3 good things which happened during the day. The questionnaire will be repeated again about 3 weeks later. The study can be done online or with pen and paper.
Research has shown it may have beneficial effects on one's mood and health.

If you think you may be interested please let me know by reply email as soon as possible and I will send you further details to have a look at.
