The Power and Strength of Emotional Grit

When life gives you lemons, do you make lemonade? Did you know optimism can reduce stress and help increase your brain's "feel good" chemicals? If you're open to such things as the power of upbeat music, gratitude, pets, laughter, random acts of kindness or facing fears, you can change or enhance your perception of life in the most trying times.

Jennifer Fernjack shares her own story of how emotional grit helped her conquer the biggest challenge of her life. In this session you will learn:

  • How to reduce or eliminate fear by embracing it
  • How the science of optimism can change your brain chemistry
  • How perspective and gratitude can help carry you
