About the Event
With the daily stressors we encounter, our bodies can elicit an on-going stress response that can have negative effects on our health. The stress response, or “fight or flight” response is the emergency reaction system of the body. It is there to keep you safe in emergencies and typically does a great job. However, when the body remains in an on-going stress response, it can work against you. You can turn it on when you don’t really need it and, as a result, perceive something as an emergency when it’s not.
Learning and using self-care exercises can aid the body to elicit a calming response which deactivates the stress response and restores the body to healthy functioning.
This workshop will teach about the impact of stress on the body, the importance of self-care, and techniques and exercises that can be utilized to minimize the negative impact of stressors. After the psychoeducation and group discussion portion of the workshop, Priscilla will lead participants in practicing self-care techniques such as practicing 4-8-7 breathing, stretching exercises, and meditation to assist with helping participants improve their self-care routines. There will be a question-and-answer segment included as well.
This is an person event at Beverly Therapists. If there is an interest in participating via Zoom, this can be accommodated as well.
