In the midst of a pandemic, our normal routines, our relationships with others, and our work and home environments are subjected to sometimes sudden and unexpected change. Having so many areas in our life affected at the same time, together with a sense of not having control over these events, can bring about uncertainty, confusion, worry and stress. But there are techniques for managing these responses. Research shows that individuals can improve how well they adapt to challenges and adversity. This session will help break negative thought patterns and offer healthier ways of thinking and behaving. Participants will be introduced to a variety of effective, practical tools to improve physical health, respect mental/emotional health and even cultivate a strong social support network under the unique circumstances generated by COVID-19.
