Almost a year into the global COVID-19 pandemic, walks and yoga have only done so much to “help us find balance” and “re-centre after a long day”. The demands on our person, both personally and professionally, are higher than ever and being asked to pivot on a dime, comes with a great cost to a person mental health and wellness.

Many are feeling tired in a way that sleep does not fix and collectively, most feel the sense of running on fumes. Dr. Altay will share how to refuel in small ways, by learning to emotionally triage, understanding the difference between sympathy, empathy, and compassion, and how to be a bit kinder to yourself.
