Developing a Resilient Lifestyle

Includes a Live Event on 02/09/2021 at 1:00 PM (EST)

In this time of global uncertainty, individuals are being confronted with unparalleled challenges. It is difficult to remain positive in the face of grave uncertainty, believe that our individual efforts do impact results, react to the financial uncertainty of an ongoing health-care crisis, and remain focused on the goal of maintaining a healthy, productive life. The results of this uncertainty can inhibit creativity, reinforce rigid thinking, exacerbate ongoing anxiety and other mental health concerns, and cause us to question our futures. How do we alleviate the difficulty of juggling the balance of life?

This webinar will encourage participants to work towards a balanced future by developing a resilient way of life. To meet the growing demands of the next normal, individuals will need to think of things in a different way, a resilient way. They will need to develop strategies for personal life enhancement, to reach a resilient mindset. This workshop is organized around the principle that resiliency is a skill set that can be developed and enhanced. Principles and practices of Positive Psychology is the framework for this action-oriented program.  

Resilience is the key to a brighter next normal. Focused on shaping the future, rather than grinding through the present, this program will introduce participants to strategies that will assist with developing a resilient mindset and lifestyle for increased satisfaction and productivity. Ingredients of a resilient lifestyle will be explored and outlined. 

The following topical areas will be covered during this program: 

  • Psychological impacts of ongoing crisis and isolation. 
  • Principles of Positive Psychology  
  • The theory and practice of developing a resilient mind-set. 
  • Introduction to life-enhancing strategies.
