Speaker:  Kelli Jaecks, MA, RDH

Many people in today’s fast-paced, overstressed world, are burned out, stressed out, and maxed-out, resulting in low morale and decreased performance - the opposite of what a thriving, successful workplace wants. In recent memory, the world has turned upside down, causing seismic changes in our personal and professional lives. So much to do, so little time. In this environment, we often place ourselves at the bottom of the list when it comes to self-care. Everyone else’s needs come before our own; both at work and at home.

How do we prioritize our own physical and mental well-being?
How is self-care not just another unfinished task on the to-do list?

By incorporating simple, self-care strategies into our lives, we can slay workplace burnout and rejuvenate our sense of purpose. This fast-paced, activity-driven presentation offers important strategies that will empower you to experience a renewed sense of self and positive workplace culture.

In this presentation we will:

  • Discover how mini-moments of self-care can make an impact
  • Investigate simple, positive changes to address burn-out and increase personal wellness
  • Evaluate and employ effective stress management techniques
  • Have fun doing it!
