Many things can affect what we think of ourselves. If all we have been exposed to is negative thinking and negative experiences we may see ourselves in a totally negative way. If we have been spoiled our entire lives we may be too self-centered. Finding balance is what life’s journey is all about. We want to help you find the balance. Our RENEW program provides strategies and tools on how to:
- Re-frame negative self-talk
- Manage stress
- Take care of yourself
- Nurture mental health
