Let go and Move on: Resources for Resilience with Corey Jackson in Maroochydore

 
We’ve all spent time imagining the perfect comeback to a past argument. But replaying scenarios and wishing we’d reacted differently doesn’t often help us in the present or the future. While reflecting on past mistakes can be an effective way of learning, it can easily tip over into dwelling on what we can’t change, leaving us exhausted and miserable. While it can be challenging to let go and move on, particularly when strong emotions are involved it doesn’t have to be this way!
 
Modern psychology and ancient traditions have a lot to say about preventing rumination from taking control of our lives – Including techniques to remove it altogether.
 
Wednesdays 6:00pm-7:30pm May 8, 15, and 22 (Doors open at 5:45pm)

Ancient Brain, Modern World: Technology, Attention and Emotions with Corey Jackson at Maroochydore

Thankfully, we can embrace the positive changes technology brings without being enslaved by every notification. This three-part series shares research on how technology sneakily targets our attention and emotional triggers as well as the steps we can take to make sure we stay in control. We’ll learn how to avoid regrettable episodes and techniques to harness technology to work for us.
