Relaxation: Feeling Calm in the Chaos

Relaxation: Feeling Calm in the Chaos

The American Psychological Association (APA) reported in February 2017 that the level of stress in America has increased for the first time in 10 years*.  The APA reports that American’s stress is coming from several areas including politics, social media, technology, and the amount of change happening in our country.  While, we can’t always get rid of our stress, we can learn to handle it better. Research points to things we can do to help us manage our stress more effectively. Techniques such as mindfulness, relaxation, exercise, all help us cope better with life’s stressors**. Come out to Appleseed CMHC on May 16th at 5:30 and spend a hour learning and practicing progressive muscle relaxation and deep breathing techniques so you can feel calm even when your life is full of stress. Wear comfortable clothing to this event so you can join the instructor in practicing the techniques.
