We've experienced changes faster and more constant than ever and our stress levels are acting like roller coasters.
BUT, we have the opportunity to build and then flex our stress resiliency muscle! YES! we can build stress resilience to adapt to these changes and stressors that we continue to face. I can help.
I have developed a new group coaching program to assist in helping YOU build your very own stress resiliency muscle! Friends, clients, and class participants have shared with me that they are feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed MORE than ever. We are living in times that are incredibly uncertain and we have learned that the uncertainty is going to be the thing that is constant. Even though we are all experiencing this pandemic together, we are all reacting differently and it's important to recognize that we all have unique living situations and environments. We need healthy coping mechanisms, tools and resources to guide us through this time and as we move forward into our future.
My new 6-week Stress Resiliency, Mindfulness & Meditation group coaching program is designed to help you learn mindfulness techniques and tools that guide you into the present moment to ease anxiety and introduce meditation to
regulate stress levels.
During the 6 weeks we will have open guided group discussion, self-reflection journal activities, and opportunities to expand our knowledge about the impact of stress on the mind and body. Each week will have a specific theme paired with an aligned meditation and final journal prompts from me for self-reflection for optional homework. After completing this program you'll be able to use breathing techniques, mind-body connection and journal prompts to help invite calm and ease into both your mental space and body to help you navigate these stressful times now and into the future.
Join me on Sept. 2nd for this special group coaching program. Pre-registration is required by Aug. 24th by 4 pm with the Town of Cornwall by calling 566-2354 or in person at 39 Lowther Drive, Cornwall or online
