This Lunch and Learn will teach you about the major causes of winter blues and S.A.D and how you can prevent future episodes for yourself and others. The course is proactive and you can expect to change your behaviour and your patterns of thinking.

Using the 8 Wise approach to better mental health and wellbeing you will learn:

  • How Seasonal Affective Disorder and the Winter Blues are triggered
  • How to manage the symptoms to overcome it
  • How to implement effective strategies to prevent it

This session is ideal for anyone who suffers from seasonal affective disorder or wants to learn more about seasonal affective disorder to look after their own wellbeing or the wellbeing of others.

The interactive session also explores how hidden hyperventilation causes poor concentration, mood swings, stress, anxiety, low energy and respiratory symptoms! The effects on productivity are obvious.

Plus, there are lots of hints, tips and hacks to help change our state through the same tools we use for focus and concentration.

And, breathwork for coping strategies and improved productivity.

All designed to enhance and elevate your physical, mental and emotional state for winter.
