I learned how to assess my stress and listen to my body. In being mindful of what is going on in my brain and body, I can breathe, change my thoughts, or use another exercise to move from stressed to a place of calm.
I learned so much! My favorite take away was that you yourself must be self-regulated before helping another self-regulate.
I work with students in elementary school. A few have some behavioral/ social/ emotional issues and have a hard time relaxing. I hope to use some of the skills to help these children when they come to my health room.
The info in the webinar will help me be more prepared to normalize the common concerns and reactions to COVID-19 for students and families I serve. It was a great refresh to the biology of stress response and anxiety.
My biggest take away was the importance of being balanced when it comes to self care. Mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially I was reminded how important it is to have balance. I shared with the presenter but this was one of THE most engaging all day virtual trainings that I have attended and I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
