IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
Introducing Refuel + Recharge, an EDGE virtual event series on mental wellness. We’ll be featuring a lineup of notable speakers who will spark honest conversations about mental health, isolation and the loneliness epidemic, and how we can best take care of our hearts and minds.
If you’ve been feeling the weight of the world, this is your invitation to a new kind of R+R – one that will refuel your emotional tank and recharge your mental energy to foster the resilience and strength we need to keep moving forward – together.
In the midst of crisis and uncertainty, the enemies of leadership are fear, doubt, and pride. Ken Coleman shared three ways to eliminate them:
1) Name it. Write it down on paper.
2) Deconstruct it to find the truth.
3) Refocus on that truth.
“If you’re struggling with anxiety and depression, this is something you’re moving through—not something that you have.”
Carlos addresses the topic of anxiety and depression and prioritizing our mental health during these challenging times.
“The trouble with perfectionism is that it’s driven by other people’s judgments. Judging doesn’t come from a place of love, it comes from a lack of healing. Wholeness has roots in healing.”
Max discusses pursuing wholeness and compassion instead of perfection and fear.
Sarah shared three mindsets to cultivate while leading during uncertain times:
Embrace vulnerability – Don’t miss this opportunity for connection.
Build resilience – Resilience is built when you intentionally appreciate, recognize, and believe in others.
Foster agility – Accept that we’re living in a new and evolving “normal.”
Rebekah shared her four rhythms for renewal for mental health:
Rest – Addressing your “inner life”
Restore – Investing in your physical health and well-being
Connect – Evaluating your relational health with others
Create – Living your purpose through your gifts and talents
