Mind Over Matter:
Practical Tools for Strengthening Mental Health
In today’s fast-paced world, where we’re always connected and always on, it’s easy to overlook the importance of taking care of our mental health.
Workload, lack of control, poor relationships, bullying, and poor work-life balance are just some of the factors that can contribute to poor mental health in the workplace.
In this session, we will explore practical tools and strategies for managing stress, promoting mental wellness, and building resilience.
- Lead participants through guided mindfulness meditations to help reduce stress and anxiety levels and promote relaxation.

- Lead a progressive muscle relaxation exercise to help reduce physical tension and promote relaxation.
- Help participants create a self-care plan that outlines actions they can take to prioritize their mental and physical well-being, which can lead to increased feelings of control and self-efficacy.
