Join us on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 for our "Kick off to Summer" ICF-Toronto Chapter Meeting
Build Your Resilience – 5 Minutes at a Time
With guest speakers: Addie Greco-Sanchez, RRP, RVP, CVRP
and Lynne Everatt, MBA
Researchers have discovered the formula for living a good life, so why is depression still the world’s leading disability and anxiety the most common mental health disorder in North America? Most people don’t know what will truly make them happy, and far too few make proven wellness practices a part of their lives. To cope with all the stresses we encounter, we need to actively care for ourselves, which includes heeding our ancient programming that demands that we move our bodies, connect face-to-face and get enough sleep. We try to ensure that our phones stay out of the red zone of battery depletion. Why can’t we do the same for ourselves and not push past the point of exhaustion?
In this informative, entertaining and interactive presentation, Addie Greco-Sanchez and Lynne Everatt will demonstrate how investing as little as five minutes of self-care goes a long way toward being fully charged. Based on the book they co-authored, The 5-Minute Recharge, 31 Proven Strategies to Refresh, Reset and Become the Boss of Your Day, research-based strategies will be presented for thriving at work and in life.
