During our transition back to full time and hybrid work on campus, the Wellness Program is offering a variety of resources, including some one time Zoom sessions, to help faculty and staff better manage their work life balance.
How to Stay Sane, Resilient and Positive During Uncertain Times
The pandemic and uncertainty of what’s to come can easily leave one feeling anxious, depressed, scattered, and lonely. This can affect how we show up at work and in our personal lives. While it may feel chaotic, the good news is that each of us has more control than we think. By using simple evidence-based techniques, you can bolster your resilience, positivity, and sense of togetherness even amidst change.
Positive psychology expert and executive coach, Stella Grizont, presented an interactive webinar to learn how to not just cope, but thrive through uncertain times.
