Wellbeing: A different kind of investment



As Stress plays a major role in the onset of anxiety and depression and puts us at greater risk for a number of health conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune syndromes. The good news is that advancements in the health sciences have demonstrated how an integrative approach to wellbeing can help us to better manage our stress. This approach can help us to move the balance of our days from surviving toward thriving in our challenging environments. While it is true that changes in the world around us, from technology to social media and geopolitical events, can make respite from stress and feelings of wellbeing seem less attainable, I would like to share with you an evidence-based model for improving wellbeing by investing your time in self-care practices. As high achievers, we may be likely to ignore the signs that self-care is needed until it is too late. However, understanding and investing in self-care can bring invaluable returns both now and later in our lives. Beyond our own health and wellbeing, we must also consider our roles as leaders, teachers or parents. Please join me for an important discussion and workshop on wellbeing and self-care.
