Most of us pay much attention to the external stressors in our life — the day-to-day challenges of work and family life — but are often unaware of how the internal dialogue in our mind can not only amplify stress but be a root cause of it. In this webinar, Dr. Nigel Lester, Director of Mental Health at PALM Health, will discuss the origins, nature, and function of the ever-present inner dialogue and how we can learn to cultivate an inner narrative that works for us, not against us.
For many, getting a good night’s sleep can be a challenge. However, making healthy and consistent adjustments to sleep habits can help improve the quality of sleep.

Well-being is about having the inner resources to meet stress while being in the midst of it. Our educational Know Yourself Workshops are designed to help you improve your overall well-being, awareness, and resilience to stress. In this virtual workshop, participants are introduced to the groundbreaking Know Yourself DVD curriculum, which offers tools, concepts and self-reflection exercises to help foster calmness, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, and mind-body health. The workshop takes place over three consecutive weeks, with a 90-minute virtual meeting each week (see times and dates below). Each week the Anthropedia Certified Instructor leads workshop participants through the content, offering additional material and reflective exercises to enhance learning.
There is a French saying, “c’est en forgeant qu’on devient forgeron,” which translates to “it is smithing that makes the smith,” or “it is in doing that we become.” Working towards meaningful goals is inherently transformative. Accomplishing personal goals improves our sense of purpose, self-efficacy, and satisfaction with life. In this webinar, well-being coach Sarah Lewis will teach you to formulate, set, and take action on your goals using the SMART method and concepts from Anthropedia’s Know Yourself workshops. This will be an interactive webinar: please have a notebook and writing utensil on hand.

Stress is the friction that helps us learn and grow in life, but there are both good and bad kinds of stress.
