This year, the AUA turns 60 and celebrates its Diamond Jubilee. As part of the celebrations, we are pleased to announce a series of two health and wellbeing webinars free of charge for AUA members.

This is the second webinar of the series and the first webinar is Your mental wellbeing beyond the pandemic, which you can find here.

About this Event

For over a year now, we have all been exposed to constant ups and downs and this is likely to continue for the near future. So the question is, how do we keep going? Understanding how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours contribute to all of this is the key.   

Participants will get a better understanding of why we lose momentum sometimes and what maintains that vicious cycle. They will become more aware of how their thoughts, feelings and behaviours contribute to the level of motivation. They will learn how to identify and challenge unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving and learn practical tools and techniques to help them stay motivated. 

Learning outcomes

By the end of this session, delegates will be able to:

1. Understand why sometimes we lose momentum

2. Explore how our thoughts, feelings and behaviour contribute to the level of motivation

3. Learn simple tools and techniques to help keep momentum even during difficult times
