Workshop: Wellbeing and mental health with Dr Hazel Harrison
We all know how to take care of our physical health (eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep) but we tend to know less about how to take care of our emotional health and wellbeing. In this session, Dr Hazel Harrison (clinical psychologist) will share with us some of the latest research from neuroscience and psychology to help us understand more about the small simple steps we can take to increase our wellbeing, build our resilience and feel more energised in our lives.
This workshop will share the PERMA model of wellbeing (Positive emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment). Hazel will talk about the impact COVID-19 has had on our wellbeing and how we are now more vulnerable to anxiety, depression and loneliness. Finally, she will share simple, actionable and practical ways to improve wellbeing.
