Take Care: The Psychology of Self Care for a Better Life
Self care is one of the most important things a person can do for their mental fitness and wellbeing. Yet, from professional and personal experience, Sarah knows most of us struggle to find the time. This engaging and informative workshop explores the science of self care, together with the essential ingredients of self awareness, emotional regulation, self compassion, and mindfulness. It covers how to manage the thoughts and feelings of stress as they arise, and participants will learn how to integrate self care into daily life to boost wellbeing now, and in the long term.
Grounded in psychology, the workshop normalises the idea of taking care and reinforces the idea that self care can be done anywhere – work or home – for little or no cost.
This workshop works well on its own or as part of a broader conversation about mental wellbeing. It lends itself to a lunch-and-learn session for groups of up to 30 participants, team building, and as an addition to leadership programmes.
Participants will learn time-efficient techniques to manage stress and improve wellbeing, and will leave the session with a personalised self care plan that supports positive thinking patterns and behaviours. Participants also each receive a pack of inspiring Self Care Cards to support the focus on mental wellbeing beyond the workshop.
