How to Cultivate the Resilience We Need Now

Anne Grady
 


“If you’re naturally one of those super, über-productive people who are wondering why in the world you’re not getting a ton done or how to get it done, take a couple deep breaths. Reset your nervous system.”

COVID-19 has rocked our world—leaving us confused and worried amidst this new changing, challenging and uncharted time. As we balance physical health, virtual work environments, caring for children and elders, and economic concerns it is hard not to feel overwhelmed, stressed and out of control. Resilience expert and top-rated Conferences for Women speaker Anne Grady shares inspiration and practical advice to help you cultivate courage, improve resilience, better navigate the uncertainty, and bring some sanity to an insane time.
