Description: Coping with heightened stress and anxiety, establishing new routines, and dealing with uncertainty amid COVID-19 and physical distancing is emotionally exhausting. Investing in practices that are protective of our mental health have never been more important. Drawing on evidence from the study of wellbeing, this participatory webinar will provide an opportunity to explore and practice a cluster of activities that promote resiliency and support us in feeling and functioning better.
To get the most out of this webinar, please:
- Be prepared to use your webcam. That said, don’t feel you need to make yourself or your space look pretty. We’ll be striving for a learning environment that’s free of judgement (of others and ourselves).
- Have your cell phone handy.
- Give yourself permission to be present. Don’t feel the need to be multi-tasking.
- Bring along a tea, coffee, or other refreshments that you enjoy (this is a self-care workshop after all).
