Healthy Habits Suck Especially in a Pandemic:

How to Get Back on Track after a Year+ of Lockdowns

Have you noticed drinking more or perhaps putting on a few pounds during COVID-19? Join the club! Being healthy is hard especially in a pandemic! Using the latest scientific evidence Dr. Lee-Baggley will review why healthy habits are hard and the impact of COVID-19 on healthy habits. Using the latest scientifically based knowledge, this course will provide applicable, real-life skills to start and stick with healthy habits. The course focuses less on “what” to do and more on “how” to do it. Participants will learn to recognize and manage what gets in the way of sticking to healthy habits including being more mindful about choices, developing self-compassion, and how to live a life that reflects what truly matters. Participants will learn new ways to live a healthier life, even if you don’t really want to.

Next Program: Wednesdays 7-8:30 pm Atlantic time (6-7:30 pm Eastern time) Oct 27- Dec 15

These sessions are based on an empirically supported professional resiliency program. These sessions review empirically based skills that individuals can use to engage more consistently in self-care behaviours (i.e., “charge own batteries”) even during this crisis. The ultimate goal is to help feel more engaged and fulfilled not just at work but also at home.


Pandemic Burnout: How to Go from Languishing to Flourishing (6 weeks)

Do any of the following apply to you?

-experiencing “languishing” (a sense of stagnation, emptiness or numbness)?
-feeling stuck or having no motivation
-feeling like everything takes longer, that its harder to concentrate, harder to get things done?
-feeling burnt-out, exhausted, tired but haven’t left your home?
-feeling like everyone else is “getting back to life” but you feel stuck
-fed up with your job and thinking about changing but worried about the potential implications?
-realizing things are re-opening but you don’t feel as good as you thought it would?
-worried about the world going back to “normal” and wanting something better on the other side?
-realized you came to appreciate some things in the pandemic like working from home or more family time and worried about losing it post-pandemic?
-got your first dose of vaccine but life still doesn’t feel good?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, this 6-week workshop may be for you. This workshop uses evidence-based techniques to address pandemic fatigue, burnout and languishing and how to move forward successfully through the next stages of the pandemic (e.g., “post vaccine”). In particular it addresses the issue that the antidote to burnout isn’t rest, it’s re-igniting a sense of meaning and purpose (e.g., “value-based living”), re-connecting socially, and integrating our experiences from the pandemic into our understanding of ourselves. Participants will be introduced to some of the latest empirically based skills and techniques that have been shown to improve well-being and sense of purpose. The workshop provides real-life, applicable skills to move from languishing to flourishing.

    Additional Resource:

    We also recommend you to purchase Dr. Dayna Lee-Baggley’s book called “Healthy Habits Suck” as a great evidence-based self-help book.

    Salad instead of steak? Working out? Skipping that second beer or glass of wine? Healthy habits are THE WORST.

    If you’re someone who gets up every morning and can’t wait for your run, considers eating sweet potatoes a splurge, and sets aside thirty minutes before work to meditate—this book isn’t for you. If you’re someone who thinks about getting up to go for a run but goes back to sleep, regrets last night’s dinner of fast food, and can barely get to work on time—let alone meditate—then this book will help you find the motivation you’ve been looking for to live your healthiest life, even when you don’t want to.
