We all encounter stress in our daily lives that at times can be difficult to manage – affecting the health of our body, mind, emotions and spirit. This is especially true as we navigate the many challenges from the COVID 19 pandemic. Practical approaches are needed that can help kids, youth and parents manage their stress. Webinar participants will learn about and practice some simple yet powerful techniques for calming our family and ourselves despite what is occurring around us.
