Primary Care Masterclass: Emotions Matter – Riding the Coronacoaster

About this session:

We are living through a pandemic that most of us could never have imagined. Many of us are not in the best emotional shape. Emotions matter for health and wellbeing – how we feel influences our bodies, including physical and mental health. Stress and pressure are associated with increased levels of cortisol linked to depression, cardiovascular issues and weight gain. Learning to regulate unpleasant emotions and experience more positive emotions have been shown to have health benefits including greater resilience.

What will be covered:

During the session you will:

• Gain knowledge about Barbara Fredrickson’s research in this area

• Explore the links between psychological wellbeing and physical wellbeing, productivity, engagement and resilience

• Undertake an emotional audit

• Learn how to maximise your positive emotions

• Apply tools and techniques to boost your emotional wellbeing
