Shifting the frantic, presented by Dr Stephen Kearney of Umbrella (https://umbrella.org.nz)

In our modern, hyper-connected, “always on” world, many people describe feeling constantly frantic, overwhelmed and as if they are constantly playing catch-up. At Umbrella, we hear comments like:

I’m always in meetings… The pace here is full on……. it’s hard to slow it down…. If we can just get through this next busy patch...

This mental overdrive often means it can be hard to utilise well known time management strategies, manage stress, or work productively, and it can feel impossible to ever fully wind down.

In this session, we’ll look at the common factors behind the frantic and review practical strategies proven to increase your experience of calm and control.

Session objectives:

  1. Shed light on the biological impact of being busy and the addiction effect that can subsequently occur.
  2. Identify the benefits of reducing the frantic.
  3. Highlight ideas, innovations and strategies known to help manage the frantic.
  4. Start your planning how to turn “good ideas” into habits.
