As we begin to wishfully maneuver back towards a “normal” society, our attitude tends to change just as rapidly. Going back into the office? Staying at home? Finding the balance between work and personal time can be a daunting task that leaves behind a confusing feeling at all hours of the day. Headache, stomachache, poor sleeping patterns, short temper, and difficulty concentrating are just some of the signs of stress. But did you know that you can turn that stress into positive energy?
Join Jennifer Wegmann, lecturer in Health and Wellness Studies at Binghamton University, Thursday, May 20, from 9-10:30 am as she shares her expertise in stress mindset and response. Professionals and non-profit partners are invited to join this open discussion on cultivating resilience and turning stress into a positive experience.
