Why You Need to Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time with Shilagh Mirgain, Ph.D

Thursday, October 3, 9:15 - 10:30 a.m.

Trying to manage your time often leads to frustration as productivity has less to do with the number of hours you squeeze out of a given day and much more to do with the quantity and quality of your energy. Join Dr. Shilagh Mirgain as she draws from positive psychology and mind-body medicine, to provide empirically supported strategies to help you optimize your energy so you can make the most of the time you have been given. You’ll explore techniques to keep your energy high throughout the day, actively reduce those things that drain your energy, and increase those things that sustain you. You’ll discover how to build a habit of deep work that harnesses your ability to focus without distraction. By implementing this approach, you’ll have the optimal energy to turn your biggest dreams into a reality.
