During this 8-week program you will learn practical strategies to help you deal with the stress in your life. Managing life's challenges in healthy ways allows you to take better care of yourself and your overall health. Each week you will explore topics through small group discussion, self-reflection and activities. You will learn ways to:
- Become more aware of the mind-body connection and how to use this awareness for better health.
- Develop habits that can lead to a healthier you.
- Respond rather than react to the stress in your life.
- Discover opportunities in life's challenges.
