Resilience as a Mindset and Daily Practice with Dr. Saby Labor


Resilience is a resource that we build, strengthen, and refill consistently. In this session, participants will learn about five dimensions of the resilience mindset and simple strategies to strengthen it daily. Together, we will visualize our resilience reservoirs to seamlessly carry our resilience practices forward. We will conclude our session by reflecting on our current state of resilience and setting intentions to direct our time and energy.
