Dr. Lisa Coyne Helps Us Better Handle Unexpected Stressors

So many of us want to be the people who leap out of bed and start the day with a giant smile and a genuine joy for what their day holds. The weight of our responsibilities and stressors may make this unbridled happiness seem like a difficult feat—or one that we have to “fake it ’til we make it.”

Add in unexpected curveballs—like a pandemic—and this kind of happiness may feel like an impossibility.

While it may seem hard to imagine, we can learn to enjoy the little things, accept the plot twists in life, boost our moods, and stop self-sabotaging behaviors.

In this session, Lisa W. Coyne, PhD, shares insights about positive psychology, provides tools and tips from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to better handle unexpected stressors, and answers audience questions about how we can be happier, one day at a time.
