Zonta Club of Cebu II organizes virtual Caring for Your Wellbeing gathering

On 16 October 2021, the Zonta Club of Cebu II, Philippines, teamed up with the USPF Golden Z Club and the Z Club Childlink High School Cebu to organize a virtual Caring for Your Wellbeing gathering of Z and Golden Z clubs in Area 3, District 17. The Caring for Your Wellbeing is a webinar to address the psychosocial and mental health difficulties among the local adolescents brought on by COVID-19 and lockdowns.

The club invited Karen Espiritu, a lifestyle coach and training facilitator, as a guest speaker. Karen enumerated areas in one's life that needs to be nurtured to achieve a sense of wellbeing, such as positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, achievement and vitality. She also talked about intervention techniques to alleviate stress brought on by the pandemic and its lockdowns. 

"All of us here, whatever age you're at, have the ability to inspire. And at the end of the day, we want not just to languish but continue to flourish," said Karen.

Karen stressed the importance of being mindful, keeping yourself busy, learning something new, building positive relationships and giving.
