Strengthen your mental resilience, workshop 5 October 2020

Strengthen your mental resilience, workshop 5 October 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the last few months have demanded a great deal of flexibility and adjustment from us. We have seen pressure rising at home and at work, daily tasks being moved online and no longer speaking to our colleagues face to face. These changes, and changes in general, take a lot of mental energy. This is also apparent from the survey circulated by the Board of the University. Enough reason to organize a workshop to help you to strengthen your mental resilience!

Content and aim of the workshop:

Themes that will be discussed include:

  • The current developments that influence your resilience
  • Learning to really separate your work and private life, both physically and mentally
  • Learning to recognize stress and use it to your advantage
  • Identifying your own stress signals
  • Concrete tools, exercises and techniques to work on your resilience every day

Our trainer will make you more aware of work satisfaction, dealing with stress in a positive manner, finding a balance between your work and private life and handling your health. Inspiring, motivating and sometimes confrontational – but all in a lighthearted and interactive manner.

At the end of the workshop, you will go home with a number of valuable techniques to go through life with mental resilience. Everything that you nourish grows – from now on, start setting your sights on the positive things in your life.

Time schedule:

The UG is participating in the Platform Mentale Gezondheid (Mental Health Platform), which focuses on researching the effects of interventions offered by companies to support the mental health of their employees. This workshop is being organized within this framework. This means that researchers from Hanze University of Applied Sciences, lead by Dr Klaske Veth, will hold interviews with the participants both before and after the workshop. The workshop itself will be lead by trainers from the Instituut voor Vitaal Ondernemen (Institute for Vitality in Entrepreneurship; IVVO).
