Daily practices and pursuing meaningful goals are major parts of wellbeing for many people. In times of crisis, however, these practices may fall to the wayside or fail to serve us. With many individuals limited in their ability to spend time with other people or even leave their homes and apartments, some of us are finding that our favorite coping strategies are no longer possible.
This webinar is designed to create space for participants to explore reaching their new or reimagined wellness goals. In this webinar, participants will:
- Learn the impact of goal setting and routines on wellbeing;
- Explore a model for achieving and sustaining wellness goals; and
- Explore the importance of self-compassion in times of crisis and uncertainty
