02 Feb Change Your Relationship with Stress: The Mind Body Connection
Stress has a way of hijacking our lives. Ever have that happen.
I know. Many of us have.
From the day-to-day demands on our time to the situational stress that unexpectedly pops up (snow days I am talking about you) to the life-changing challenges that can take our breath away, stress is a constant in our lives.
So while I don’t believe we can eliminate stress, I do believe that we can change our relationship with it. The key to managing stress is understanding your relationship with it, recognizing its effects on your mind and body, and having strategies in place that work for you.
That’s where this breakout session comes in.
During this program you will gain knowledge of the stress response and the relaxation response, participate in experiential exercises that offer relaxation in the moment, as well as learn practical, evidence-based strategies that can immediately be implemented to change your relationship with stress in both your personal and professional lives.
I’d love to have you join me for a morning of learning, connecting and most importantly, relaxing.
