Stress Management That Works: Three-Part Webinar Series

Every day, we all encounter stressors such as traffic, work deadlines and family obligations, to name a few. Sometimes, it feels like we can’t get away from stress. This three-part webinar series will help you become more aware of when you are feeling stressed and provide some simple techniques and strategies on how to cope with stress. 

Session I: March 8, 10-11 a.m.

This webinar will provide education and background knowledge to help you understand stress and its effect on your body. We also will discuss how to identify when you are feeling stressed and begin to understand how you can decrease your stress number through understanding how you currently think about your problems. Registration required.

Session II: March 21, 10-11 a.m.

This webinar will dive deeper into understanding your stress by discussing how we can shift our thoughts about stress from being unsurmountable to being a solvable problem. Registration required.

During this webinar, we will discuss how to incorporate stress management into our daily lives. Often the idea of adding things to our day to manage stress can feel overwhelming. We will discuss how better time management can assist in effectively managing our stress. Registration required.
