Mindfulness Skills for Stress Reduction — with Sharon Allen
Stress has a profound impact on our physical, emotional, and mental health. The good news is that we do not need to be a victim of stress. Research substantiates that quieting the mind and relaxing the body on a regular basis improves the immune system and can reduce symptoms of hypertension. Mindfulness skills and strategies are taught to reduce the effect of stress and to enable us to participate in managing our health.
This class deals with key issues that contribute to stress. Class topics include:
- the mind/body connection
- dealing with worry
- attitude and stress
- listening and communication
- and becoming a stress-hardy person.
Home practice techniques and written exercises will be given on how to increase mindfulness, including meditation and a mindfulness movement practice. Please wear comfortable clothing.
