Self Permission
For most of us when we were kids, we learned to seek permission to do just about anything.  As we have transitioned into adulthood often, we continue to “raise our hands” at work, home, and in our everyday lives…we tend to seek approval rather than give ourselves permission to engage in our well-being, to set boundaries with our time and energy, or to try something different, etc. During this webinar we will explore some reframing tactics and self-talk to challenge some of the learned societal/cultural expectations of our roles and transfer our perspective to empower ourselves with permission.
