9am-12pm: Session:
As we continue to move through the year, what if we made a plan to be intentional? A plan that included both our personal and professional wellness. A plan that included steps for goal setting; incremental steps that look at the positive and celebrates what is already being done. A plan that incorporates resilience practices to reduce burnout; to create a community of support and camaraderie that reflects strength and respect. An intentional plan that really supports our mental health. Ultimately, a plan that encourages a positive work environment that creates retention and inspires more individuals to seek you out for seasonal, part-time, or permanent positions.
Here are seven ideas that you can do now to boost your resiliency:
1. Be Authentic – know your values, develop your strengths and emotional intelligence.
2. Find Your Purpose – engage in work and tasks that really matter.
3. Maintain Perspective – learn from setbacks, look for and focus on solutions, manage your negative self-talk and thinking.
4. Manage Stress – find a balance with work, life, and your own self-care.
5. Collaborate With Your Colleagues – be intentional about seeking feedback as well as finding ways to support others.
6. Support Your Own Health – schedule the time to participate in the physical activities you enjoy, drink plenty of water and eat healthy.
7. Social Supports – use the networks you have both inside and outside or work to support you.
12pm-1pm: Lunch
1pm-2pm: Self Plan
