Building Resilience to Manage Work, School, and Job Search Stress
About this talk
We are in uncharted territory with this global health crisis and the unknowns about the economy and job market. Most people are feeling a heightened sense of concern and worry. This situation can lead to an increase in levels of stress (and spikes in our cortisol) that can adversely impact our well-being and our effectiveness. However, there are some things you can do. In this webinar we’ll discuss details about how stress impacts us, as well as how mindfulness practices and positive psychology principles can help.
Practicing various forms of mindfulness can reduce your stress and move you towards being healthier, more productive, and calmer during times of uncertainty. These practices are being capitalized upon by CEOs, not to mention being used to transform whole school systems. We’ll also widen the topic to include a bit of neuroscience, to help you move yourself out of that “fight or flight” state and into one that is more sustainable and more effective.
You’ll learn techniques to:
Lower your stress - with tips that fit into an already busy schedule
Approach big decisions (like career issues) feeling more calm and confident
Use visualization to enhance job interview and presentation success
The aim of this session is to give you fresh ideas to help you understand your stress and build resilience to reduce its impact on your life.
