Resilience and looking after yourself in challenging times
Many of us were used to working with others in an office, visiting clients face to face, having a daily routine and being able to live fulfilling lives meeting others and participating in hobbies. As our working and home lives are now changed drastically, we need to look after our physical wellbeing even more – and that of our families. This session is focused on your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Susan Heaton-Wright returns to our local institute with an interactive webinar and a chance to ask questions and share good practice. The aim of this course is for attendees to go away with the knowledge and practical ways to improve their resilience in these challenging times.
