The webinar has passed. Thank you for attending!
The Wintertime Mindset Webinar is an interactive, research-based workshop developed and delivered by Stanford health psychologist Kari Leibowitz to help individuals cultivate a mindset for loving winter. In the webinar, participants will learn about how mindsets play a powerful role in health and well-being, and how to harness their mindset to enjoy the winter season. To translate these insights into action, participants will be guided through a series of interactive exercises to help them cultivate a more positive wintertime mindset, combined with specific suggestions to support well-being in any season.
This webinar combines Kari's experience living above the Arctic Circle in Tromsø, Norway with her PhD researching the power of mindset to provide evidence-based, psychological insights for well-being. Shedding light on how a small shift in mindset can make a big difference, Kari provides concrete strategies for learning to see winter as a time of joy and opportunity.
