Finished up a talk yesterday at SLC for the Learning Connections Wellness Fair offered to staff and Faculty. It was wonderful to see everyone connecting around personal and professional wellness.
The presentation - Emotional Health: Working Toward Change and Well-Being - gave registrants the opportunity to learn how stress impacts emotional health – for better and worse – and how to determine if chronic negative stress or distress is having an impact on your wellbeing. We looked at:
~ How to assess whether stress is a problem for you;
~ How to assess and work toward your own well-being, and
~ How, for long-term change to occur, there must be a change in your perceptions, beliefs, patterns of behaviour and relationship dynamics.
