This workshop, taking place from 9:30-11:30, provides an introduction to the basics of understanding stress, stressors and the stress response in people. You will learn about the stress continuum and the four areas in which stress exists in all of us. You will be taught a simple breathing technique that the latest research demonstrates can be highly effective in managing the stress reactions in both our minds and our bodies. We will focus on ways you can begin to control how external & internal stressors affect you. We will talk about aspects of personality and behavior that can contribute to escalating our stress levels and how we may, with practice, learn to manage our unwanted and unhealthy responses to the stressors in our lives.
