The 6 Steps to S.A.N.I.T.Y.

From Stress To S.A.N.I.T.Y.

There is a way!
When we work in high demanding roles, juggling the complexities of multiple responsibilities, often the stress of the situation can creep up on us. Then one day something goes wrong! It may be a health complaint, a relationship strain, burnout or some other negative response.

Whether we look at the latest research into gender equity and stress, or whether we explore the physiological and psychological impacts of stress in the world of science – we need to address this topic to prevent it becoming an epidemic of highest proportions.

I really enjoyed the course both the online component and the 3-day face-to-face workshop.

“The workshop was just a lot more interactive and there were some good practical exercises that I enjoyed. For example I took away lots of tips on exercises including stillness and active mindfulness – that will help me to implement breaks in my very busy life. I think that’s really important according to what I have been taught to prepare myself for that peak performance state. I thought it only applied to sports but in fact for myself to really think clearly and present the version of myself to the team. I really need to be in that state.”

Thanks for training me to become a confident speaker.

The importance of being in action, not letting resistance and hesitations get in the way.

“It’s given me a lot of tools and information that I can research more and new ways to think and how I can put things into action. Knowing that I have the ability, the resources, and the inner wisdom to do these things with courage, is great. The importance of being in action, not letting resistance and hesitations get in the way, trusting my own gut and my wisdom, the importance of affirmation has been really reinforced for me. Authentic Leadership is not about being a leader as the official title but leading your own life.”
