This webinar has been voted LeadingAge Knowledge Center’s Best of 2020!
Worry serves a useful purpose – it warns us of danger, it motivates us to find solutions. Worrying, however, that goes on for longer periods of time without cease, can lead to anxiety and a host of health problems. This 12-minute webinar offers 5 practical activities for anyone to help reduce worry and create calm for themselves, and among those that they are supporting. The webinar comes with downloadable handouts (see below) that can be laminated and cleaned for safe reuse so they can be easily shared with others.
Reviews of Creating Calm
Thank you for sharing the “Creating Calm” webinar. I thoroughly enjoyed the simple reminders of gratitude and mindfulness. My teenage daughter and I take walks through our neighborhood quite a bit these days, and we use your tips to practice mindful walks. We listen to the chirping of the birds, the rustling of the trees, the sounds of children playing. As we walk, we think about things we are grateful for. Your webinar is a wonderful reminder to be thankful for the little things that we often overlook.

you for the wonderful Creating Calm presentation. Your tips are
wonderful, and I will be incorporating them into my daily life in order to take
care of my mental health. I’ve posted the ‘Morning Affirmation’ next to my bed
to remember to repeat that each morning. Even your voice was calming! Thank you
for all you do for the care community. Stay well.

I just finished listening to the Creating Calm tutorial/session. I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to put his together. I have been researching ways to assist our team members with stress and lower anxiety during this pandemic. I will utilize some of the tools you suggested.

Thank you – terrific to see your new Creating Calm webinar. Such a help for both our health providers and “anyone/everyone” experiencing worry in these upside-down/inside out times.

What I love about this wonderful resource is that during this challenging time, we can offer this to those we serve, as well as a tool to practice much needed self care. Let us all be reminded through these exercises to be a peace and have joy. Thank you!
