This session is for everyone— those of you staying home, those of you working from home, those of you on the frontlines, those of you out of work, those of you with young children or adult children at home, and those living alone. In this practical, interactive session, Amy Saltzman M.D., author of A Still Quiet Place: Mindfulness Skills for Achieving Peak Performance and Finding Flow in Sports and in Life will show you how the mindfulness and self-compassion practices that athletes use to find flow can support you during this unusual time.

Some of you may be dealing with anxiety and depression due to the abrupt changes in your day to day lives. Others of you simply realize this pause in your hectic life is an ideal time to up your mental/ emotional game and practice skills scientifically proven to benefit elite athletes, business leaders, creatives, frontline heroes, people dealing with typical day to day stress and those facing more intense challenges. So join us as we learn skills for achieving peak performance and finding flow.

You will benefit greatly from learning essential life skills such as:

  • Strengthening distress tolerance and emotional resilience 
  • Learning specific ways of dealing with intense feelings, and distracting or negative thoughts
  • Developing the ability to respond rather than react in moments of difficulty
  • Creating specific supportive physical, mental and emotional self-care routines
  • Offering support to, and receiving support from, family, friends, and community
  • Practicing gratitude, and maintaining a sense of humor.
