Are you stressed out? Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or depleted? Or are you interested in maintaining or improving your health? This workshop will provide information on the impact of stress on both physical and mental health, the importance of knowing your own personal stress signals, and the difference between responding vs. reacting to stress. Participants will also explore the role of mindfulness, holistic self-care, and self-compassion as helpful tools in creating and maintaining wellness in the midst of the challenges of daily life - including life at the NIH!
