In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing world, we are increasingly exposed to stress from different sources. However, as a society (perhaps more than ever), we are also engaged in a growing discourse on understanding stress management and practicing self-care. Building on these premises, the purpose of this interactive workshop is to introduce attendees to research and practice from disciplines including organizational behavior and psychology which spans topics of: recognizing the impact of stressors on one’s mental and physical health; navigating feelings of uncertainty, anxiety, or isolation; utilizing strategies such as yoga and meditation; and seeking external resources. In addition, this workshop will explore the bridge between science- and sacred-based practices for managing stress effectively -- in mind, body, and spirit.
