Whether you’re still in the workforce, retired, an empty-nester or still have kids at home, too much stress is toxic. It can lead to serious illnesses and even death. “If you’re not managing stress, you’re going to have a harder time maintaining good health as you get older,” affirms Johns Hopkins stress-management expert, Michelle Carlstrom, L.C.S.W.-C (hopkinsafter50.com).
Stress can increase inflammation in the body, which can lead to high blood pressure and lower HDL (good) cholesterol. A stressed person is also less likely to get enough sleep, exercise, and make healthy food choices. All of which raises the risk of stroke and heart attack.
The good news is, there are healthy and fun ways to protect yourself from the damage that stress can cause to your body and mind! In this workshop you will learn a lot about the stress reducers that are increasingly being recommended by physicians everywhere. Methods such as: exercise, mindfulness meditation, yoga and even aromatherapy. All of these activities have been linked to a healthier heart and a greater sense of well-being.
Join us, as we discuss tips and tactics for stress reduction. Learn to identify the situations in your life that trigger stress, as well as establish new healthy habits (like going for a walk instead of reaching for junk food or sweets when you’re anxious). Our 3-hour workshop is sure to guide you toward a healthier, happier and noticeably less stressful life.
