Health Improvement Program

As a busy professional, it can be hard to take time out of your schedule to prioritize self-care. Yet taking care of yourself is not a luxury; it’s imperative. When you are at the bottom of your priority list, it affects not only your health and well-being, but also your relationships and your job performance. Prioritizing self-care is what allows you to build resilience, make informed vs. automatic responses to life stressors, and optimize your critical thinking to respond to life’s challenges.

So many of us are hardwired to prioritize our work before our own well-being. Let’s shift that narrative by learning why and how to prioritize well-being before work.

In this webinar, you will learn the short and long-term consequences of stress and discover practical self-care strategies that can be used to prevent stress from turning into distress. We will explore the science behind our biological and psychological response to stress, how to recognize signs that you’re in distress, and 6 practical self-care strategies that you can incorporate into your life right now to improve your well-being.

Instructor: Shanna B. Tiayon, PhD, is a writer, speaker, and trainer working in the area of well-being. Currently she combines her academic and corporate experience assisting professionals with managing their personal well-being as an integral part of their career strategy and helping organizations develop diagnostic tools, systems, and training programs that foster employee well-being.
