Building Your Resilience During Challenging Times
May 20, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Researchers have discovered the formula for living a good life, so why is depression still the world’s leading disability and anxiety the most common mental health disorder in North America? Most people don’t know what will truly make them happy, and far too few make proven wellness practices a part of their lives. To cope with all the stresses we encounter, we need to actively care for ourselves, which includes heeding our ancient programming that demands that we move our bodies, connect face-to-face and get enough sleep. These important factors build our resilience, especially during these challenging times.
In this entertaining presentation, Addie Greco-Sanchez will demonstrate how investing as little as five minutes of self-care goes a long way in building resilience and decreasing absences related to stress and mental health challenges. Based on the book she co-authored, The 5-Minute Recharge, 31 Proven Strategies to Refresh, Reset and Become the Boss of Your Day, Addie will provide useful strategies for thriving at work and in life. These wellness strategies are all research and science based and take little time to practice.
The presentation will focus on the following:
- The five pillars of wellness: Sleep, Step, Sweat, Reflect and Connect;
- Practical tips to help you optimize your mental wellness during this pandemic
- Strategies to help you reframe your thoughts and reflect more positively to reduce your stress
We look forward to connecting with you!
