Navigating Behavior Change During COVID-19 – Moving Toward What Nourishes Us


Daily life during a global pandemic is full of challenges. With new stressors and changed schedules, even things that used to feel easy can suddenly seem overwhelming. Trying to work toward positive behavior change in an uncertain world can feel almost impossible. Even with the best of intentions, we may find ourselves drawn back into old patterns and self-limiting behaviors, leading to feelings of shame, guilt, and anxiety.

Join us for this noontime webinar to explore how our motivations and values shape our actions and gain practical tools for doing what truly nourishes us during these difficult times. Citing scientific research on stress, behavior change, and neuroplasticity, we will explore what draws us to self-limiting behaviors and how validation, affirmation, and compassion can move us closer to self-supporting behaviors and the life we truly desire.

Sarah Meyer Tapia, MA, is associate director in the Division of Health and Human Performance at Stanford University. She has worked in both employee and student wellness, studying and teaching stress-management, mindfulness, self-compassion, and behavior change to students, faculty, and staff.
