Stress, work-life balance focus of upcoming workshop
November 4, 2015
As a way to help employees reduce stress and find balance in their lives, a "Stress and Work/Life Balance" workshop is being offered by the Center for Healthy Living. The workshop will take place noon to 12:50 p.m. Nov. 18 at the center.
The workshop, presented by Jodi Briggs, registered nurse and certified health and wellness coach at the Center for Healthy Living, will teach attendees how to recognize the sources of stress, how bodies and minds react to stress, and strategies for balancing work and home life demands. The discussion also will include resources on the pathophysiology of laughter, coping techniques and relaxation techniques.
"Maintaining work-life balance is no simple task as the boundaries between work and home can become blurry," Briggs says. "It is important to protect your health against the negative effects of work-related stress to ensure you have a healthy work-life balance."
