PCI Webinar A Mindful Approach to Stress

Like most people, you probably have a lot going on and good reasons to feel distressed. Being stressed from time to time is actually normal and healthy. The problem is when it is ongoing and chronic. Not only does it feel incredibly uncomfortable, but stress can cause numerous serious health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, insomnia, memory loss, anxiety and depressive disorders.

The good news is that with modern technology, we can understand the nature of stress and find skillful ways in reducing or even preventing it. Some of this requires lifestyle changes, but a lot of it has to do with how we perceive and relate to what is happening and how we choose to respond.

Join us in this webinar to learn more about the science of stress and how to use mindfulness as a tool to reduce its grip on your day to day.

As a result of this program, participants will:

 

  • learn how to discern between healthy and toxic stress
  • understand the physical mechanism of stress and how this can lead to disease
  • investigate what causes stress and how to create more supportive conditions to keep it from arising
  • practice how to be with and attend to stress more mindfully
  • explore meditation techniques to reduce anxiety and overwhelm
