JULY Tea and Buns | RESILIENCE: Are we still maintaining our wellness or has ‘resilience’ become a buzz word?

29 July | What tools can you implement in your everyday life to stay resilient in 2021?

During the pandemic there have been lots of conversations about the importance of staying physically and mentally healthy and resilient. But now it’s time to check in and ask each other – how are we going? Are we still maintaining our wellness, or has ‘resilience’ just become a buzz word?

This month Dr Ruth Knight will be asking mental health advocate and trainer Donna Thistlethwaite some questions to help us reflect and stay optimistic as we head into the second half of 2021.

We will be discussing:

  • Why managers and teams should continue to promote and support resilience at work.
  • Having work and life routines that help you manage your everyday stressors.
  • That no matter what – we all have a choice.
