Session: Taking control through proactive self-care

Uncertainty and unpredictability have characterised the last two years of our lives, and show little sign of slowing. Living in a state of flux that requires us to constantly adapt and change can be exhausting, and can take a toll on our mental and emotional health.

This presentation will focus on understanding (and accepting) which facets of your personal and professional life you can control. Natasha will explore a proactive approach to building a foundation of positive mental and emotional wellbeing by managing your sleeping habits, maintaining a nutritional diet and looking after your emotional fitness in a way that helps you feel balanced, prepared and in control.
