Building Resiliency at Home and at Work:
It Makes Me Happy


Emotional health concerns have a significant impact on work performance. Each day, most employees walk into work distracted by a personal issue. Many of these distractions can be classified as a mental health issue such as a marriage or family concern, anxiety, depression, or job stress. The American Psychiatric Association Foundation reports that about half of individuals with anxiety and depression are untreated. Despite these statistics, emotional health remains a taboo topic at the workplace and persons often push aside normal emotions to force positivity. This training offers a fresh perspective and new take on mindfulness, gratitude, and resilience to address thoughts which lead to anxiety and increased stress levels and flip them to improve overall wellbeing and job performance. This is accomplished through the use of skill-building exercises and tools to help participants reconnect with their authentic selves and provides a simple formula to find joy in their lives.
