Self-care is critical for the health and well being of any person living in a 21st century urban environment. It is important for all individuals to care for their own mental and emotional health and well-being. A positive mental attitude ensures a productive human being with an exceptional quality of life. A Buddhist parallel asserts that individuals need to care for themselves first in order to more effectively engage with others, as healthy individuals are better equipped to provide assistance in
professional and social capacities. The aim of this workshop is to help enhance participants' mental and emotional strength and resilience through lessons of self-care. The workshop will employ
cognitive behavioral technique, mind-body medicine, neuro-linguistic programming, performance psychology, and mindfulness training. Imagery is the use and integration of people's sense of experience in the world. In fact, it is omnipresent in our everyday lives and thought processes, and the activities in this workshop are designed to sharpen our natural inclinations. Utilizing a frame of reference of how participants experience the world, the workshop will include an integration of
senses in a guided visualization. By gaining more heightened awareness of thoughts, emotions, and ambitions, participants will learn to selectively choose and create their own powerful verbal
cues, which will then be used to guide their experience. Integrating imagery encompasses mental skills foundations, building confidence, goal setting, attention control, energy management, andrelaxation. Together, these skills help individuals enhance and become more congruent in their lives.
