The videos include guided mindfulness practices that you can seamlessly integrate into your daily routine.
Module 3 - Response Flexibility training to emotionally regulate and create thoughtful responses in challenging situations
Do you find yourself instinctively reacting to situations at home and at work and then regretting your actions? Mindfulness tools can help us to thoughtfully respond rather than instinctively react. This module teaches you how to develop response flexibility: emotionally regulate and create thoughtful responses in challenging situations. Dr Reena offers guided visualization and meditation practices to help you cope with the 'VUCA' environment of healthcare.
Module 4 - Mindful self-compassion; a positive self management tool for personal wellbeing & professional effectiveness
It’s no secret that healthcare professionals work in a culture of perfectionism and they’re often very self-critical. This can lead to feelings of unworthiness, stress and anxiety. It doesn’t need to be this way; there is a kinder and more effective way of engaging with ourselves. In this module, you'll learn about the positive self-management tool of mindful self-compassion. Dr Reena provides a written reflective practice and defines the components of self-compassion while busting common misconceptions.
