Got stress? Learn to relax.

The Stress Managament and Relaxation Program coming to Barriere is filling up quickly.  Reserve your place now for this comprehensive course on stress, what causes it, how it affects your health, and ways to manage your response to it.

If you can imagine a life with less worry, more productivity, a happier outlook and healthier habits, this might be your opportunity to make it happen.

You have the power to choose a more satisfying life.

The program consists of eight weekly one-hour sessions on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Barriere Ridge’s Volunteer Information Centre, beginning on April 10 and ending May 29.

Participants can expect to gain a greater understanding of their own stress “personality”, individual triggers, and stress reduction techniques that will work best for them.

This is not a meditation or exercise group, but an exploration of many proven methods to promote relaxation and wellness, including guided imagery, progressive relaxation, mindfulness practices, problem-solving, cognitive restructuring, building healthy habits and more.

Pre-registration is required to attend the program.  You can register at North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre office, or call 250-672-0033 or Jennifer at 250-672-5734 (leave message) for more information.  There is a fee for the program which includes take-home materials.
