Workforce Wednesdays: Build UP Your Stress Armor
April 19 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Workforce Wednesdays Workshop Series Event hosted by the Middlesex County Office of Career Opportunity will present Rita Garnto speaking on the topic of “Build UP Your Stress Armor” at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 19.
Stress is a matter of mental and physical health. When cortisol – “the stress hormone” – is constantly elevated, it can lead to psychological symptoms like anxiety, depression, and irritability, along with systemic, physiological symptoms, like fatigue, brain fog, digestive issues, pain, high blood pressure, and even heart disease. Learning where stress comes from, how it affects our brain and body, and how to tell when we are stressed are three key steps towards improving our mental, physical, and emotional health.
But fighting stress itself can be stressful, especially when you are already inundated with so many responsibilities and obligations, so the stress-busting solution needs to be simple and doable. Garnto will take workshop participants from crappy to happy with simple self-care tips.
Take a deep breath, count to 10, and join Garnto via Zoom for this free Workforce Wednesdays workshop. Click here or scan QR code in the flyer to register.
