What we covered

Welcome to our session on "The Impact of Self-care on Mental Wellness." In today's fast-paced and demanding world, taking care of our mental health is crucial to leading a fulfilling and balanced life. One of the key components of mental wellness is practicing effective self-care. Join us as we delve into the powerful role of self-care in promoting mental wellness and learn practical strategies and techniques for providing effective help and support while maintaining healthy boundaries.

Our session will be facilitated by Mark, a proactive mental wellness strategist, author, and keynote speaker with valuable insights to share. Mark's expertise will guide us through the importance of creating safe spaces for ourselves and others, managing our focus, developing emotional intelligence, and preparing our brains for the future workplace.

Importance of Self-care

Self-care is not just about indulging in occasional treats or pampering oneself. It encompasses a holistic approach to nurturing your mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Taking time for self-care is an essential aspect of maintaining good mental health and resilience, especially amidst the pressures of the workplace.
