    Female professionals commonly struggle with strategies to maintain harmony between time dedicated to work and that devoted to family, friends, and self-care. This harmony is necessary to foster resilience, a quality that allows a person to be knocked down by a difficult life event but come back stronger than ever. Setting boundaries and saying no are strategies that support resilience, such that a person is aware of her limited physical and emotional resources and can allocate them in a way that is healthy and realistic. In doing so, time for self-care is preserved and the ability to recovery quickly from difficulties is maintained.   

    In this webinar, attendees will learn new ways for determining and implementing physical and emotional limits to ensure optimum work performance AND personal health.

    To limit stress and resentment, attendees will also gain tools to help them be more realistic about prioritizing and more comfortable with saying “no.”
