Tools To Handle Covid-19-Related Stress

This workshop focuses on specific activities to reduce stress caused by COVID-19. Participants will review proven stress-reducing techniques such as being accountable and recognizing the choices we can make, engaging in activities that encourage us such as hobbies, remembering past successes and how we have survived previous stressful situations, and taking breaks where we step away from a stressor for a moment of personal renewal. All of these techniques can help us to de-stress, and then do what we need to do in a more effective way.
