The topics included in Lance's presentation will be:

  • The essentials of emotions – how information is processed, and how to control our negative thinking.
  • How to manage the consequences of a post-Covid environment dealing with uncertainty and adversity.
  • Reducing worry – treating worry for what it is, a risk management tool, by introducing a risk-mitigation plan.
  • The balance wheel – another practical activity that allows us to identify where altering a small piece of our life can make a massive difference.
  • It’s the little things – practical techniques to boost energy and self-motivate, to switch off after a busy day, as well as how to get to sleep quickly and stay asleep.
