About the Resilient Mind Program
The resilient mind program is a 4 week guided program that blends resilience education with mindset tools, workouts, recipes, leader-boards, a social fee and a habit-forming Ritual Board to deliver real and long-lasting benefits to those who participate.
Why are we doing this?
These are tough times. Our lives have been turned upside down and significantly impacted by fear, anxiety and panic about coronavirus (COVID-19). Following on from the bushfire disasters over summer, the travel and tourism community has been materially impacted in a number of ways and faces ongoing struggles with all of the uncertainty driven by the impact of COVID-19.
Common consequences of disease outbreaks include anxiety and panic, depression, anger, confusion and uncertainty, and financial stress, with estimates of between 25% to 33% of the community experiencing high levels of worry and anxiety during similar pandemics*.
To assist members during this very difficult time, AFTA has partnered with the Mind Body Brain Performance Institute to deliver a comprehensive resilience program that provides members with the necessary mental and emotional support, along with a range of proven practical, actionable strategies and tools to help them in the face of adversity.
