More than ever, now is the time to understand how  non-conscious biases and patterns impact our wellbeing. Stress, poor sleep, despair and boredom can harm our bodies physically and mentally. We all suffer from these conditions on occasions, but some thrive while other tread water, while others sink. Using John Joseph’s Emotional Rooms Model, invented by John to deal with life-threatening cancers, you’ll learn how to make the most of your own mental resources to thrive in bleak times.  This brief session will help us to Balance Stress, Improve Sleep, Maintain Hope, and Optimise Willingness and Knowingness.

  • Introduction to the Emotional Rooms Model: a model of hope and inspiration
  • Understanding interplay between feelings, emotions and thoughts: perspectives on how to manage emotions & stress
  • Avoiding long-term chronic illness caused by Allostatic Loads: the (wellbeing) highs and lows of working in schools
  • The Hope and Despair Cycles: a declinist attitude of pessimism and despair, or a constructive attitude of optimism and hope: inspiring ways to manage 7 key emotions
