Imagine you’re sitting in a meeting for work. Your boss is talking about planning for the next quarter. You have a notebook out and you’re scribbling notes. Then, you hear a ding from your phone, which is lying face-down on the table next to you. You start to wonder who it’s from, what it’s about, and if you need to check it. You quickly glance at it to make sure it’s not something pressing. In the time since you first heard the ding, you’ve completely switched gears in your brain and missed several minutes of discussion on the next quarter’s goals.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed out, it may be time to delve deeper into your mental health to reclaim your well-being.

There will be a brief question and answer session at the end of the webinar.

The latest fad in self-improvement is the so-called “dopamine detox” or “dopamine fasting.” Its proponents promise an instant “reset” of the over-stimulated brain. But what actually is dopamine and what is the science behind this fad? Is it based on a sound theory, or is it just marketing hype? In this webinar, Dr. Nigel Lester, psychiatrist and Director of Mental Health at PALM Health, investigates the latest Silicon Valley craze and throws light on the current trends in popular mental health practices.
In the same way that it’s important to feed your body with nutritious foods for strong physical health, it’s equally important to take a look at how you are feeding your mind for strong mental health.
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.
The year 2022 is expected to be a time of challenge for all of us. Since people grow the most in well-being when they are challenged, this year is a unique opportunity to learn what we can do to live well. In this webinar, Dr. Robert Cloninger will discuss the Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI), a comprehensive tool he developed in 1993 to assess personality based on the way people learn to adapt to new or difficult situations in life. Through their TCI profile, individuals learn how to improve their adaptive skills and well-being at any age, in any situation.

When was the last time you were truly bored? What did you do when you felt that way? Like most people, maybe you picked up your phone, or turned on the TV. Now think about what you did as a child when you were bored for a prolonged period of time. You played pretend, went outside and made up games, or created something. After moving past the initial discomfort that comes with boredom, you unlocked your purest form of imagination and creativity.
In chaotic and turbulent times like these, it can be difficult to keep your bearings.
