An interactive introduction class
The relentless stress that many of us face in today's day and age is taxing on the psyche and spirit and can interfere with our well-being. It need not be this way, yet the necessary skills and coping strategies to take on these challenges are rarely taught and it can be daunting to know where to start to make a change.
Beyond having good coping mechanisms to deal with anxiety and self-doubt, we must be able to communicate effectively, manage conflict, and maintain trust from friends, colleagues, and partners.
In this class, you'll explore the seven traits of emotional fitness and how to take actionable steps toward developing your own emotional fitness regimen.
In this class, you’ll explore the 7 traits discovered by Coa's Co-Founder & Chief Clinical Officer Dr. Emily Anhalt through her research.
Get to know yourself and all of your patterns. Research shows that 95 percent of people believe that they're self-aware, but only about 10 to 15 percent really are. As the core of all emotional fitness, self-awareness is critical in supporting your development of the other traits.
Empathy enables us to build meaningful relationships by listening to and understanding others, even when it’s difficult. In this class, you’ll learn how to understand and meet the needs of those you spend time with.
For those of you committed to personal growth, you’ll often find yourself doing things for the first time; meaning that the best option is rarely the most comfortable. Mindfulness helps you find comfort in discomfort and make the right decision, instead of the most comfortable one.
Curiosity is the ability to pursue growth over defensiveness. By learning to pause, ask the right questions, and model the habits of curiosity, you will turn difficult conversations into growth opportunities.
Despite the joy that play can bring, it is often thought of as a frivolous nice-to-have as adults. Incorporating authentic play as a habit sparks spontaneity and creativity, and is a crucial part of mental and relational health. Plus, it makes life a lot more fun.
In life, you will invariably face setbacks, challenges, and failures. The people who succeed are not those who avoid these things, but those who are able to bounce back. Learn to set yourself up for success by building habits and practices for resilience.
Communication is the skill of effectively putting words to your needs, expectations, and boundaries. Doing so effectively is crucial in maintaining healthy relationships and mental wellbeing. Learn how to talk through issues in a proactive and flexible way.
It’s time to prioritize our mental health. In this 8-class series, you’ll learn how to manage stress, build resilience, and grow closer to the person you want to be.
