Get the latest research related to the impacts of stress, and learn alternative strategies for managing this stress as part of our daily routines. It has been estimated that over two-thirds of visits to physician offices are for stress-related illness and concerns. In fact, stress is at epidemic levels in the western world, including in the beautiful valley in which we live. Relentless stress adds up over time until a state of crisis is reached and symptoms appear. These symptoms may manifest themselves psychologically as well as in physical symptoms. Stress is a major contributing factor to the leading causes of death. But, properly harnessed, stress can motivate us to do great things. Managing this stress makes us a better person – happier, healthier and more productive. This course will review and discuss practical strategies for managing and/or finding outlets that diminish stress including deep breathing, muscle relaxation, meditation, changing thought patterns, lifestyle changes, problem solving, time management, exercise, dietary changes and other related stress reducing methods. This is intended to be an interactive class.
