What people are saying about Find your Balance: Stress Management
“It was excellent to be reminded of different ways to cope with stress and to talk about the hard things. I also found learning about all the different ways that the body may react to stressful situations to be very useful.”
“It was reassuring to hear that other people have similar struggles and I like the tone that the course was offered in – it normalized my feelings and explained the reason(s) behind them.”
“The information and discussion around neuroplasticity and brain routing patterns was interesting and thought provoking. I found the presentation easy to follow and came away with a lot of tools to take away.”
“I liked everything in the presentation, but the one that stood out for me was the different types of things we can do to alleviate stress both physically and the way we think (mentally).”
