Wellness is “a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential” as defined by The National Wellness Institute. The following resources cover an array of issues related to burnout and practical ways to practice wellness.
The Energy Project at the 2017 SGO Annual Meeting
During the 2017 SGO Annual Meeting, Katherine Bailey, Senior Facilitator at The Energy Project, made a keynote speech on “Transforming the way we work; the science of high performance.” Katherine conducted an Energy Audit™ to get a sense of how effectively attendees were currently managing their energy across four dimensions–physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual–as well as a separate breakout session during Education Forum IV with a discussion of solutions and review of one’s personal Energy Audit score.
As a follow-up to these presentations, The Energy Project is offering the following wellness resources:
