To love yourself is to take good care of yourself, and there’s no better month to celebrate self-love than February! Join us for the February self-care series which covers topics such as mindfulness, stress reduction, and self-compassion, and is open to anyone who wants to take time time out from their day to do something nice for themselves. A different topic will be covered during each virtual lunchtime session. You can attend one, two, three, or all four sessions.? 

Calming Down and De-Stressing 
February 8, 2024 
Anger is a human emotion that we all feel at one time or another because…we are human! Anger is neither good nor bad, it just is. During this workshop participants will be introduced to the effects of stress and anger on the brain and body. Participants will also practice ways to calm down and de-stress when angry. 

Mindful Self-Compassion 
February 15, 2024 
When we lack self-compassion, we may find it difficult to be compassionate toward others. However, self-compassion is often viewed as being self-indulgent or selfish. During this session, we will talk about the components and benefits of self-compassion and practice an activity to help you experience what self-compassion feels like.  
Changing Negative Self-Talk 
February 22, 2024 
Do you ever feel like your thoughts are spiraling in a negative direction? What if we talked to ourselves like we did with a good friend? You can! During this session, participants will learn about the brain’s negativity bias and how it affects our stress response. In addition, we will talk about the benefits of positive self-talk and explore other tools for dealing with negative self-talk. 
Forgiving and Letting Go 
February 29, 2024 
How individuals handle their anger and stress affects the people around them. This workshop helps to increase knowledge about anger issues and put healthy relationship skills into practice. This lesson includes ways to begin to explore forgiveness and letting go of past hurts that might be weighing heavy on your heart. 

This series will be available over Zoom. Instructions on Zoom software and setup will be sent in the reminder email before the session.
