Presented by Cynthia Ackrill MD, FAIS
Sadly, most adults were never taught key principles and skills to handle stress well. In fact, in the pursuit of “success,” we’ve been rewarded for thoughts and behaviors that make it worse or compromise the very self-care we need to be strong. The result: way too much struggle, suffering, exhaustion, and even shame. (“Why can’t I seem to handle this”). Not to mention, loss of health, happiness, focus, energy, and finances. Let’s not pass that legacy on to our kids! Let’s let Covid inspire us to teach our kids better ways to negotiate life challenges.
Outline of the presentation:
1. Learn proven strategies to deal with stress
2. Discover key principles to teach your kids
3. Gain an understanding of 5 key skills to practice for stress relief
