The impact of Covid-19 has caused a lot of change in our lives. While some of this change has been unwelcome, many people have also found unexpected positives from this experience. Whether it is valuing greater flexibility in your work, or deliberately connecting with people you don’t see regularly, keeping going with these positives as we resume a more normal version of life is important for boosting our wellbeing.

In light on these experiences, this workshop focuses on the idea of positive growth, reflecting upon what has been meaningful to you during this time, and identifying priorities for moving forward building on these positives.

Session objectives:

  • Understand common reactions to uncertainty and adjustment

  • Align your time and energy with what is important to you
