We are not born to think negatively; we learn to think this way. Over time, negative self-talk can become a habit. We begin to doubt our abilities, our intelligence and our stress level rises. Consistent negative self-talk can lead to unnecessary tension and anxiety in addition to shame and depression. We don’t have to fall victim to it. We can learn how to change our way of thinking, reframe the situations and create ‘new positive programs’ in our brains. With awareness and some proven working strategies, that we will learn in the workshop, we will become better equipped to change our thinking patterns and increase our level of liveliness!

Workshop Description:

The sources of burnout are many and varied such as: lack of control, unfairness, work overload, breakdown of community, loss of meaning, etc. Being well equipped in order to successfully handle these storms in our personal and/or professional life is key.

In this multi-day workshop series, we will explore and work on the 4 cornerstones of our well-being: focus, positive self-talk, connection, and meaning. Our approach to this topic also includes an infusion of Ignatian spirituality.
