Living With Vitality, Passion & Purpose

This motivating and thought-provoking talk is for all women: professionals, mums, executives and women in leadership striving for work-life balance, trying to balance all the balls in the air at the same time- a successful career, healthy relationships, family and a meaningful life. With an unrelenting pace and demanding busy life, your energy levels drop, your stress levels increase, and you may push yourself beyond your physical capacity. You may become depleted physically and emotionally.  It turns out that most of the factors, which affect our wellbeing, are due to our personal life choices. Interestingly, healing may also take place as a direct result of the passion and purpose with which we live. It fires up the immune system, motivates and energises. You will leave this talk inspired with some thought provoking questions. It includes some common-sense tools for enhancing your health at all levels, nurturing yourself, relieving stress, and achieving tranquillity, clarity, and meaning. This presentation's purpose is to incorporating strategies to optimize personal wellbeing and live with greater resilience and energy.

 

Tuesday 18th September – Joyce Chong

What Does Being Female Mean For Wellbeing And Mental Health?

Being female has implications for your wellbeing and mental health, namely higher levels of overall psychological distress as well as poorer mental health outcomes compared to males. Why is this the case? Transitions through various life stages and roles, facing gender-based social issues, and experiencing unique physical health challenges, all bring about a degree of adjustment, and it is this adjustment process that yields challenges for your wellbeing and mental health. In this presentation we’ll look in greater detail at:

-       What unique challenges face women (e.g. the different life stages and roles, gender-based social issues, physical health challenges)? How do these challenges impact on women’s identity, wellbeing, and mental health?

-     What is the psychological impact of navigating through these challenges – that is, the impact on women’s wellbeing and mental health? What does research tell us, and what does our clinical experience tell us?

-      How can we improve outcomes for women’s wellbeing and mental health? We’ll focus on practical tips to help you with steadying the ship through challenging times, drawing on the basic building blocks for good mental health and looking at mindset shifts.

Is Your Office and Home Ergonomics Working for You?

Office ergonomics remains a challenge especially if the workplace has a fixed type of ergonomics.  The understanding and application of ergonomics at home and in the workplace really depends on your understanding how to apply your own body mechanics and posture to these environments and not merely the equipment.  Come and participant in this practical session of which ongoing application and research has spanned over 30 years with national based results and outcomes.
