Martial Arts for the Mind: Stress & Resilience Skills for the Federal Workforce
Tuesday, March 28, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM
Gain clarity of mind and an increased resiliency to meet and overcome life's challenges. This training provides both physical and cognitive techniques to overcome the negative impacts of stress, and to increase our capacity to bounce back from adversity.
Navy Seals use these techniques to calm intense fear before combat; athletes and actors use them to enhance performance under pressure.
Learn how to:
1) Manage challenging work situations with greater calmness and clarity of mind; bounce back more quickly from adversity
2) Understand and communicate more effectively with difficult co-workers
3) Dramatically reduce stress with clinically-proven breathing, meditation, and relaxation techniques that can be done in just a few moments
4) Achieve significant relief from tension, chronic pain, and insomnia, among many stress-related health conditions
5) Increase mental focus and productivity amidst 24/7 hyperconnectivity and distractions
