TUNING INTO THE BODY TO REGULATE FEELINGS

The COVID-19 pandemic has been negatively affecting us for almost two years. We continually experience emotional challenges related to our relationships, our work, and our personal lives. This can result in prolonged dips in mood. In this workshop, we present you with unique ways of coping through the use of somatic/body interventions with evidence-based strategies. Mind-body connection can be reinforced to promote ways in regulating our mood.

WHAT IS GOOD ABOUT FEELING BAD

There has been an increasing number of mental health difficulties brought upon by the pandemic. Most people try their best to adjust to varying conditions at school, work, and family life. We ultimately try to get rid of unpleasant thoughts and emotions to adapt better but only find ourselves in the same situation later on. In this workshop, learn how to navigate thoughts and emotions better, whether pleasant or unpleasant, to achieve balance and wholeness.

SELF-COMPASSION: A SKILL TOWARDS EMPOWERMENT, GROWTH, AND CONNECTION

Success is often defined by the impossible goals of perfectionism, competition, and overwork. However, this approach often leads us to feel powerless, insecure, burnt-out, and leads us to respond harshly to ourselves and others, especially when we experience making mistakes or encounter challenges and difficulties. Self-compassion leads us to a more realistic approach to success – one that empowers us to learn from mistakes and failures, have a realistic acknowledgement of our resources and competencies, and recognize our worth and our authentic selves. Our capacity to extend self-compassion to ourselves determines our ability to extend compassion to others. This online workshop introduces participants to self-compassion – a healthier way to respond when we encounter mistakes, when we think about perceived imperfections, and when we experience various challenges and stressors.
