Live sessions: Tuesdays, 12:00–1:30 pm ET
✦ Examine how older models of self-care are insufficient
✦ Work through my positive psychology–based model, which brings both depth and efficiency to our self-care practices
✦ Consider how we build daily nourishment and increase our self-respect and confidence
✦ Look at how to set and maintain healthy boundaries and the value of saying “yes” to what we love to do and who we love to be with
✦ Discuss multiple options for caring for our bodies, minds, hearts, and spirits, and develop individual, purposeful templates for the unique journey each of us faces
✦ Get super clear on what no longer works for us, clearing the dross within us and around us to achieve a healthier balance.
✦ At each moment in life, we have a choice about where to invest our energy—and older models of self-care have given us insufficient understanding about what really works for most of us, most of the time.
✦ As we activate a better balance of attention toward ourselves and our care of others, we elevate the prevention of illness, distress, burnout, and/or meaninglessness in our lives.
✦ Bringing together research from the fields of positive psychology, mind-body medicine, self-compassion, self-esteem, and goal achievement can support us in building a more defined and more inspiring model of self-care.
