Feeling exhausted and discouraged? Is your plate fuller than you would like it to be? You are not alone! To a greater or lesser degree, we are all living in a time of emotional distress, exacerbated by a global pandemic that has been going on longer than anyone expected. In this webinar, participants will learn ways that mental health education can be integrated into the curriculum in a way that does not overburden teachers. In fact, mindfulness, deep breathing, and yoga are among the most effective coping strategies to manage stress, build resilience, and improve cognitive brain functions such as concentration, working memory, problem solving, and attention to detail.
