Simple Self-Care Practices for Entrepreneurs
WednesdayNovember 201:30PM - 3:00PM Free
According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, nearly half (46%) of entrepreneurs report that their mental health interferes with their ability to work. Being an entrepreneur is exciting…but the pressures of working without a safety net can wreak havoc with our sense of well-being. While we’ll never be able to completely remove the anxiety and stress from our lives, we can implement habits that will help to build resiliency.
In this 90-minute workshop, we’ll look at simple, no and low-cost lifestyle changes that can reduce the effects of anxiety. We will also move through breath work and yoga postures designed to calm the mind and body. Please note that yoga and mindfulness should never replace speaking with one’s doctor.
Some yoga mats will be available, but please bring one if you have one. Dress in clothing that you can comfortably move in.
