Playing Your Way to Wellbeing

Broadcast on March 21, 2023
With Dr. Katie Hendricks
Hosted by Beth McDougall, MD

Many of us realize now that judging and beating up on ourselves doesn't work, but what does? Play — with and through our bodies — creates practical magic that can transform our relationships that start with being at home in ourselves. In this session, Dr. Katie Hendricks will explore powerful, simple body intelligence moves you can make throughout the day to refresh, get unstuck, amp up creativity, and listen deeply to your many facets. You can transform anxiety in a few minutes and open to more effective interactions.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The quickest way to change your mind is to change your body
  • Play is far more effective than work
  • How you can fulfill your dreams while having a good time if you include your body
