Feeling Strong: Achieving our Goals of Life Balance and Learning to Take Care of Ourselves
Presented by Laura Cappellucci, LCSW
Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN)
As women, there is a struggle to balance many aspects of daily life and often find their needs put on hold. In this workshop, Laura will discuss several key areas in which we can improve upon our emotional health and well-being, which by definition is emotional strength. These areas include:
• Emotion Awareness and Mindfulness Practice to improve the mind/body connection.
• Setting Boundaries to preserve identity and stability.
• Self Care: How to practice true self-care, ranging from fun activity to taking responsibility for one’s own health and well-being.
• "Finding a Tribe": Connection, love and good support contributes to our emotional well-being.
