Reflect, Revive and Refresh with Rene Barrett

It’s become clichéd to say that these are challenging times. Everyone knows that many people are more stressed, anxious, lonely, and depressed than usual. It is entirely reasonable to feel these things, given what’s going on.

In this uplifting and engaging session, independent development consultant Rene Barrett will explore how to calm negative emotions and how to learn the scientifically proven tools and techniques which will have long term benefits for our wellbeing. We will explore the latest developments in neuroscience, positive psychology and resilience to help you enhance your own well-being, feel less pressured and facilitate resilience and well-being in your teams.

It’s almost 12 months since the start of the pandemic in the UK. More than two-thirds of adults in the UK (69%) report feeling somewhat or very worried about the effect Covid-19 is having on their life. The most common issues affecting wellbeing are worry about the future (63%), feeling stressed or anxious (56%).

While some degree of worry is understandably widespread, more severe mental ill health is being experienced by some groups. Experiences will of course vary from person to person; it’s important to acknowledge that staff and teams may be going through a wide range of responses, just as they have been since the start of the pandemic.

However recent studies have found that even under these strenuous circumstances, some people are managing to thrive. The research has found that resilient people, people who handle life’s challenges especially well, and who quickly bounce back from setbacks, are better able to hold on to the good, even in the presence of the bad.
