The coronavirus has changed our daily lives tremendously. Classes are taught online. The gyms are closed. Hanging out with a group of friends is almost considered to be a crime. Everything that gave us structure and predictability seems to be gone. This four-week interactive class offers you ways to cope with all these changes. You will learn how to improve your well-being in a sustainable way, using tools that are backed up by science. Each session will be taught via Zoom. The well-being exercises will be sent to you by email. Some exercises will be done during the session, while others are meant to be done in between the sessions. Enroll now!
