How to stay grounded when the world around you isn’t.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Fiona, Cathy reflects on how so much of our experience is beyond our control. At times like this, our greatest opportunity for influence is not in focusing on how to change our circumstances but in focusing on what we bring to those circumstances.

The first step in becoming calmer and more grounded in situations like this is in becoming aware of where you are. Cathy shares a technique for heightened awareness she calls “the systems check” to support you to bring your most resourceful self to challenging situations.
