Surviving the Holiday Stress Webinar - Fri, Nov 18, 8 - 9p. Join us and invite your friends to this free webinar on handling stress during this season and beyond. The end-of-the-year “to-do list” seems ever-expanding, and thinking about that can send us into a stress spiral. But the question is, are we stressed or overwhelmed? In Atlas of the Heart by Brene Brown, she explains the difference. Stressed – We feel stress when we evaluate environmental demand as beyond our ability to cope successfully. This includes elements of unpredictability, uncontrollability, and feeling overloaded. Overwhelmed means extreme stress and emotional and/or cognitive intensity to the point of inability to function. One way to combat these feelings is to take intentional daily time for yourself. Join us for a free 1-hour webinar as we discuss tips and tricks to help you deal with holiday stress! This webinar is free and open to the public!
