Resilient Living: Home Alone During COVID
Learn resilience building skills in the context of living alone and working through the COVID-19 pandemic in this 1 hour workshop with Ashley Hawkins Parham, Wellbeing Program Manager with the Office of Wellbeing. With consideration specific to the experience of living alone during these uncertain times, we will discuss what resilience is and is not, practice trauma-informed mind-body skills and explore intentional and game-changing perspectives for continuing to navigate our new normal. You will leave the workshop with skills for managing emotions and thoughts in the moment and tools to create your own resilience plan prioritizing pro-active rest and social connection over reactive recovery. Integrating resilience building practices into our day to day lives will decrease our fatigue and chances of burnout while helping us to find times of balance and calm in the coming months and beyond.
