Session 1 Preparing Your Wellbeing Plan for 2023
Teaching is both stressful and rewarding, yet sometimes it feels like we are running in circles. Everyone has heard about the importance of taking care of their wellbeing, but often it just becomes another list of things to do that ends up being guilt inducing. This session, based on cutting-edge science, will provide participants with simple strategies for stopping stress fast as well as the opportunity to develop a personal wellbeing plan for 2023.
(light refreshments for those attending both sessions)
Session 2 Cultivating practical optimism
The upheaval of the last few years has been substantial. The new normal is exhausting. Cultivating practical optimism is a critical key to getting the best from your brain. People with a positive viewpoint have less stress, better creative problem-solving skills, and better health outcomes than less optimistic people. This session provides participants with a toolkit of strategies they can use to cultivate practical optimism and improve their emotional wellbeing both professionally and personally.
