What you will get out of it
This series will help you acquire valuable knowledge on how to keep positive, stay healthy, and survive in these uncertain times, and how to keep your business afloat.
Let’s face it: whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you do for a living, you will have been affected by the current coronavirus situation one way or another. Many of us have or will suffer financial losses, others will see their mental health deteriorate, and, even worse, we might lose a loved one or become unwell ourselves.
This webinar will cover the following areas:
• Daily routine
• Habit stacking method
• Physical Intelligence (EQ)
• Resources: books, apps, websites
There is no right way to feel right now, but we need to focus, continue to work, and stay productive. At the same time we need to process our emotions, live in harmony with others, process their emotions, keep calm, do the grocery run in apocalyptic fashion, eat well, stay healthy, exercise, clean e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g, don’t catch it, don’t spread it, don’t stress, don’t worry, keep your business afloat, find clients, pay the bills, and obviously … wash your hands for 20 seconds every 20 minutes, and please don’t touch your face!
Are you exhausted? Yes, we all are!
There’s nothing normal about what we are going through and, when you work for yourself, you and your business are one and the same thing. And when you are not well, your business is not well. Taking care of yourself both physically and mentally is now more important than ever.
So, let’s get #togetherapart to talk about how you can maintain your professionalism, productivity, and sanity while making every effort possible to keep your health and business afloat.
