To Register:  Honoring "Mental Stealth” and "Mental Wealth:" Can This Sneak Attack of COVID19 Make Us Smarter?

Tuesday, May 10th | 12:00 - 1:00 PM

Presented: Avalon Events Center OR Virtual

Speaker: Gail Nelson

Program Summary:

We will never be the same after living through a pandemic experience.  Our world has changed, our jobs have changed, and we are different human beings than we were before Covid19 pressed in on us.    It is easy to believe that 100% of the population is experiencing depression and anxiety with evidence being use of mental health services up 600%.   In the US, we are carrying the collective grief of 1 million deaths (6 million worldwide) and exposure to a news cycle that is bringing crisis and war into our daily lives.  How can we honor this pain and grief and yet, learn, grow, and become wiser?    I wish I had all the answers to this complex equation.  We will explore it together.

Key Takeaways:

1.       Explore what it means to have a nervous system mobilized for danger.

2.       Review the distraction factors that are showing up in the workplace from role confusion.

3.       Identify ways to complete the stress cycle in 1- 5 minutes.  (Identify stressors)

4.       Consider how this experience has invited us to be more aware, better at handling polarity and ways to honor our grief and loss.
