Thu (6 Sessions) Nov 04 - Dec 09 | 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM
STRESS! It’s been mounting in all of our lives in various ways over the last year. It ebbs and flows, and at times we carry more of it than we might like. What happens to our bodies when we experience stress? How does it impact our brains? And what can we do about it? In this 6 part mini series, come and explore different ways you may be able to work more productively through your stress. We will learn about the science of stress and each week we will encounter a different medium to help work through and release stress. Explore how fitness, art, music, and writing can offer ways to help you cope with stress in healthier ways.
