Understanding the Brain Science to Understand Your Emotions

Posted online
As humans we know our brains need to feel safe, first and foremost, which is why we physically distanced and made such drastic changes to our daily routines in recent months.
But we also need to be heard, to have the opportunity to name our struggles and have them witnessed. It also is incredibly important to be compassionate with ourselves, as family members, employees, supervisors, or business owners. We are living through a pandemic. It’s not only allowed but essential that we practice self-care and “set our glass down” in order to make it through this.
We hope you’ll enjoy this series and share it with your friends, employees and business colleagues.
If you would like to plan a private Be Well experience for your team or organization, please reach out to Burrell Director of Marketing Jana Greig to inquire about available dates and program specifics.
Thank you for joining us! We’re looking forward to these conversations with you!
