Reducing Stress and Building Resilience

Anyone working in the health and medical research sector has experienced in one way or another the unique stressors it brings. We often hear that to have a successful career it is important to be resilient – especially when it comes to bouncing back from disappointments such as unsuccessful funding applications or paper rejections. However, we’re rarely told how to effectively cope with stress or how to build resilience. The good news is that these are both skills that, with the right tools and some practice, can be learned!

To help us learn these valuable skills, we are thrilled to be welcoming internationally-accredited mindfulness and meditation practitioner, R u Ok? Ambassador, and psychology student, Chelsea Pottenger.

In this 1-hour Zoom workshop, Chelsea will share some brilliant tools to help you become calmer and enhance your productivity so that you can maximise your output while performing under pressure. You will leave inspired and motivated to make small behavioural changes that will make a big difference (at home and at work!).

We look forward to seeing you online with a screen full of women working across the health and medical research sector.
