Unplug and Recharge

$35

with Heather Shaughnessy-Cato

Calendar Aug 18, 2022 at 12 pm, runs for 1 week

"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes... including you." -Anne Lamott. Feeling a bit tired, stressed, depleted? There is a very good reason why -- our minds and bodies have difficulty processing and managing high levels of stress and uncertainty over long periods of time. This session will provide an opportunity to pause, reflect, and attend to your own well-being. The session will begin with a mindfulness exercise and gentle yoga appropriate for home or an office for grounding and to release tension. Then we will explore a wellness tool to reflect on and assess well-being in various parts of life.  Finally, we will design small, incremental actions we could take this week to both savor what is going well and attend to an area of life that could use more attention.
