Date & Time

August 23 | 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join us in person for “Managing and Reducing Stress in the Most Stressful of Times” on Tuesday, August 23 at 6:30 PM.

It may seem like the world has gone a little – or a lot – crazy. The never-ending pandemic, polarized politics, war, mass shootings … will we ever feel safe or “normal” again? Events and circumstances like these can make us feel powerless, fearful and stressed. So, what CAN you do? How do you cope? Actually, quite a lot.

In this interactive session presented by licensed mental health counselor Jill Hamilton Buss, you’ll learn about the nature and impacts of stress while discovering evidence-based strategies for managing and reducing stress in daily life.

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn:

How stress works and why stressors like those mentioned are some of the worst for our nervous systems.

About the many facets of stress and how it manifests in the body and mind, and how chronic stress can have serious negative consequences on both.

How you can manage and reduce your stress through simple, evidence-based strategies. You will learn 10 strategies to significantly reduce your stress now.

This program is presented by Jill Hamilton Buss and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
