Stress, depression and anxiety may not sound as scary as other life-threatening diseases, but they can be as detrimental and dangerous to your health. The effects take a toll on one’s mental and physical well-being – not to mention impact our ability to succeed personally and professionally. In a world that is fast-paced, constantly changing and always connected (overly-connected) it is unrealistic to eliminate them all together. This session will help you identify symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety. Featuring health, wellness, and workplace experts, we will explore ways in which we can minimize stress and better manage our energy, thoughts and time in a more positive way. Together we will learn how psychology, mindfulness, sleep, nutrition and exercise all contribute to creating a happier and more success life.
