Live webcast: Stress Management and Resilience Training

January 17, 2013

Ongoing stress has a negative effect on health, happiness, relationships, sleep, mood and overall quality of life. Excessive stress also adversely affects executive functions, including attention, memory, judgment and decision-making.

Resilience is the ability to adapt well to stress and to even thrive amidst adversity. It correlates positively with several psychosocial and health-related variables.

In this workshop, you’ll learn why and how your brain and mind work so hard to keep you stressed. You’ll also learn simple everyday exercises to train your attention and interpretations with the intention of decreasing stress and enhancing resilience and well-being.
