Presentation: Welcoming Change Mindfully

Change is the new normal.

If nothing else, 2020 was a great reminder that change can happen on a micro or macro scale. We all know change happens – we just don’t know when, where, how, who or what will change. But change can be stressful. It can make us anxious, disappointed and undermine our state of well-being. Even small, trivial change can be stressful and trigger our defences. Change and uncertainty can really test our resilience.

In this session, you will learn how to apply mindfulness to maintain a mindset that truly welcomes change. Mindfulness enables us to cut that knee-jerk reaction to change, to accept what’s happening, respond consciously, remain open, adapt and move on. You will learn why mindfulness is an essential skill for building resilience and managing uncertainty.
