Upcoming webinars include:

Wednesday 17 June: 10am – 10.50am
Webinar: Staying healthy whilst working from home – Practical advice and tips for you and your teams
Working from home is likely to be a different experience for many than working on campus. Less moving between buildings or between floors in buildings, and less trips to the photocopier! Whatever our situation, there’s potential for us to become more sedentary in the way that we are working. Finding ways to stretch, exercise and take regular screen breaks is important, as well as keeping healthy snacks to hand. This webinar lead by Tom Sherratt and Bharat Samra from the UoN Sports Team is packed of practical hints, tips and activities for keeping you and your team healthy whilst working from home.

Thursday 18 June: 9.30am – 10.20am
Webinar: Focusing on you
Focusing allows you to create a clear space, and even experience growth, in a crisis. This webinar, led by Emma Tickle, offers you the opportunity to explore what focusing is so that you might do both of these things for yourself. Gendlin, (1956), developed steps to guide your attention inwardly towards your bodily felt sense. The felt sense processes experience with greater immediacy and intricacy than either thinking, or, feeling allow. Focusing recognises that while your experience of the Covid-19 crisis is unique to you, the felt sense is always constructive, even if we can’t always make sense of it. This webinar introduces you to this limitless, free, well-being resource, as well as offering you the opportunity to participate in a focusing practice. It is hoped that the webinar will inspire you to explore how focusing helps with emotionally regulation, tolerance for uncertainty and the potential for growth, even in the most challenging of times.
