SA Council Network
** Special online afternoon teatime virtual online session with Sue Langley (Global Speaker and Thought Leader)!!**
Please join your AHRI SA State Councillors Ritu Datta, Shaun Monis & Stephany Dobbelstein along with our very special guest speaker Sue Langley to explore the topic of “The Upside of Stress – Creating Connections”.
How you view stress will influence how it impacts you. Changing how you think about stress could make you happier, healthier and better able to reach your goals. Research on mindset and resilience will help you focus on the benefits of stress and embrace it, activating the brain’s natural ability to learn from challenging experiences.
During the session participants will:
  • Explore the research around stress and emotions and how to use it.
  • Find out how our brain shapes outcomes, including healing.
  • Challenge thoughts about stress to shape physiological responses.
  • Use the ‘tend and befriend’ response to stress.
  • Use a practical toolkit to get better at handling life’s challenges by understanding, accepting and leveraging it to your advantage.
