While often a happy time of family connectedness, holidays can also bring about stress, uncomfortable emotions, and ‘the blues’ for individuals, families, and couples. Join Paulette England Erickson, a therapist with the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, for a lunchtime workshop on becoming mindful and reducing holiday stress. Participants will learn and practice several different strategies for reducing seasonal and life stress, including mindfulness, cognitive restructuring, and emotional health and regulation. Mindfulness practices have been demonstrated to
• Decrease physical and psychological symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression;
• Increase ability to relax;
• Reduce pain levels;
• Increase energy and enthusiasm for life;
• Improve self-esteem;
• Develop the ability to cope more effectively.
