Personal Power – connecting with our confidence

We’re offering the opportunity to embrace a month of confident living. Sometimes a good dose of self-compassion and a boost to reignite what’s already within us can make all the difference to our confidence and self-esteem.

Being confident isn’t about having no fear or doubt, it’s about being unsure but going ahead anyway. Confidence cultivates having the courage to embrace change, face challenges head on, embody a positive mind-set, accepting your vulnerabilities and learning from your mistakes. True confidence is about conquering the intangible fears we face on a daily basis, and the best news?  All these can be learned.

 

 

Beating Burnout

How much energy do you feel able to bring to your work currently? How much is left for your personal life?

Given that we have been working through the pandemic for a year now it is not surprising for us to feel tired, flat or lacking our spark. The good news is that this isn’t inevitable. With some awareness and some strategies we can recharge our batteries and rediscover our zest.

This is the focus of our ‘Beating Burnout’ training – join us for 90minutes as we explore the topics of burnout and compassion fatigue, increasing our understanding of our current energy levels and identifying strategies to recharge our batteries.

 

Way To Wellbeing

If you are interested in finding out some hints and tips to boost your health and wellbeing then this is the training for you. We’ll help you get the basics in place from staying hydrated to getting enough sleep. We’ll also share some of our top tips on creating boundaries between our home and work life. With plenty of opportunity for discussion this training will act as a timely check in for anyone who feels like they need to go back to basics.

 

 

Schwartz Round - Tuesday 23 February 1.00pm-2.00pm

Put your own oxygen mask on first: Working in healthcare often means we’re very skilled at taking care of others, yet we sometimes pay less attention to taking good care of ourselves. Our next Schwartz Round will explore the challenges and emotions associated with that. Contact Ruth for more: Ruth.Bailey8@nhs.net.

 

Financial Wellbeing Support Group

We know that our financial situation can have a direct impact on our overall wellbeing and often when we face challenges financially we find other aspects of our wellbeing take a dip. Following a recent Financial Wellness session led by Chris Hughes from the Hughes Company (catch up on the session here) we have set up a Financial Wellbeing Support Group. This peer support group, running monthly, provides a safe space to share challenges as well as tips and techniques on making the most of our money. We also plan to have different speakers join the group from time to time. The first session will be 3.30-4.30pm on Wednesday 3 March -- Contact dchst.engagement@nhs.net for the link to join the session.
