Stress Reduction: the science of calm
Join us to de-stress and relax with this mid-week pick me up with Elizabeth Carter!
Stress Reduction: the science of calm is intended to provide participants with a research-backed understanding of what stress is, what its short term and long term effects are, along with experiential activities that will teach you how to lower your in-the-moment stress wherever and whenever you need to.
Together, we’ll take a holistic look at how stress affects us on many levels and how we can approach stress reduction from the multiple dimensions of ourselves: physically, environmentally, and internally.
After a brief talk and visual presentation, we will engage in many of the topics discussed. There will be mindfulness activities, a brief guided self-compassion meditation, and a simple self-hypnosis exercise that you can learn to use on your own. Each activity will be followed by a short discussion and reflection period.
After a short break we'll reconvene for a longer (15-20 minute) guided imagery meditation for relaxation and ego strengthening, with an optional discussion afterward.
