If you work in the veterinary industry – doctor, technician, administration, support –we are pleased to invite you to a free ‘wellness’ workshop provided by ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – Palm Beach County.

Part 1: Strategies to help with feeling overwhelmed during uncertain times.

During uncertain times, the brain wants to ‘know what’s next?’ It’s natural to feel stress and anxiety and gravitate towards negative thoughts. In Part 1 of this workshop we will introduce practical tools you can implement right away to help ease feelings of being overwhelmed.

  • Are you stressed and overwhelmed? Learn to recognize and address chronic exposure to stress and being overwhelmed
  • Learn how to create healthy coping strategies to navigate stress and reduce anxiety
  • How setting intentions can help re-focus
  • Reframe: asking yourself a different question
  • Being curious vs. being attached
  • Boundaries and radical self-care

Part 2: Build your well-being and effective ways to recharge through this ‘new normal’.

In Part 1, we addressed tools to help ease feelings of being overwhelmed. In Part 2, we introduce four areas to help you thrive from the inside out, strengthen your mental well-being, and expand your capacity.

  • Strengthening your mental well-being and emotional intelligence
  • Building your mental well-being to better manage stress
  • Creating a culture of engagement with your team (Whether you are a doctor, technician, supervisor, client service representative, or in admin.)
  • Cultivating a plan for recharge and renewal
