As the Canadian leader in fitness management, LIV North knows how important the topic of mental health and wellness is to business owners and managers. When the New Year came and provinces such as Ontario reinstated COVID-19 restrictions, we wanted to offer some of our expertise to our clients and members.
The following is a brief summary of our 6 part series Navigating Mental Health Through the Pandemic. These live virtual sessions were held over a 3 week period on our Optimal by LIV North platform and were free to access by all of our users. The series is now also available on demand on Optimal.
If your organization is interested in having this series presented live or receiving access to the on demand content, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summary of Mental Health Series:
Our bodies, behaviors, thoughts and emotions give us notifications that we are experiencing stress. Unfortunately, many of us over-ride these warning lights for weeks before we are forced to deal with them due to a health crisis. The symptoms of stress vary for each person, and you can experience them physically, emotionally and behaviorally. It’s helpful that you recognize these so that you can take action to reduce the stress and reach out for help earlier. It’s also helpful to recognize these behaviors in others so that you can be more compassionate towards them and help them.
Through the 6 part Mental Health Series you will follow Lindsay in these short, 20 minute sessions and explore aspects of mental health such as :
- Social connections;
- Self care;
- The role social media play in mental health;
- Unrecognized thought patterns, and;
- Techniques for combating and recognizing mental health concerns early.
Mindfulness can help us to recognize our thoughts as they arise, and choose to direct our attention elsewhere. LIV North offers live mindfulness sessions 5 days a week to all Optimal users as well as a large library of on demand sessions.
