We hear the word Stress everywhere today--commercials, front page of magazines, and the news. The word is used so much, we tend to ignore it.  While growing up, I don’t recall hearing the older generation talk about stress.  Not that it didn’t exist, it’s how it was handled.  Stress impacts the way we think, behave and communicate. According to a 2016 research paper, done by Eastern Kentucky University, Department of Occupational Safety,  stress costs US companies over 300 billion dollars each year.  Now that’s a project worth taking on. 

Learning Objectives

This session will look at the different techniques and steps that we can put into practice to reduce the impact of stress on our mental and physical being.  

  • Work life balance – what does that really mean to you
  • Meditation – there’s just too much noise
  • Activities to sharpen mind and body – I don’t have the time
