Event description

Description


The simple act of living in today's world brings about stress for most people. Raising children, navigating work challenges, watching the news, caring for aging parents, serving the needs of others all seem to have inherent stress-inducing challenges in them. We know that how we experience that stress is related to how we interpret the situation, manage our own expectations and emotions, and seek outlets to relieve those emotions.

In this workshop we will explore the cause and effect of daily stressors in a light and humorous manner to achieve the first step of stress-relief: awareness. Once awareness is established we will delve a little deeper into our interpretation of events through reflection and metaphorical exercises that help us realize that by changing our perspective we can start to shift our reality. Through story telling we will introduce humour to change our self stories to be more empowering and resolution-based than drama based. Finally, we will introduce an experience simple meditation and breathing exercises to immediately reduce our physical and emotional stress response on-the-go. Including discussions of how these strategies might be applied at work, at home, and on the go.
