Stay Calm and Carry On!
Tuesday, February 23, 2021
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Hosted by Knox City Council and Linda Black

We can’t always control the situations that arise in our lives, but we can control how we respond to them. Victor Frankl, a Viennese psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor wrote in his iconic book, Man’s Search for Meaning:

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” But that can seem impossible – “How can you expect me to change how I feel in this situation!”

The problem is that the alternative simply adds prolonged suffering to the setbacks and disappointments in our lives. But HOW can we control our responses in these situations?

This webinar will cover some of the innate inner resources you have that you can use effectively in challenging situations and a few simple methods that will help you to calm down.
