It goes without saying that 2020 has added an unprecedented amount of stress to our already stressful lives. Even during more “normal” times, workplace pressures alone – like tighter deadlines, shorter release cycles, higher demands, and reduced resources – can push our stress to a dangerous level if we don’t know how to manage it properly.
Join us on Wednesday, December 16th at 6 pm, as special guest Tom Speare teaches us simple techniques for releasing stress and anxiety, including the meditation practice Navy SEALs and first responders rely upon to stay calm in the most stressful conditions imaginable. No physical exercise is involved; just sit comfortably in a chair.
This online event is being offered free of charge for all STC New England members thanks to the generosity of our new chapter president. STC members from other chapters are welcome to attend for just $10, students for just $5.
From Mike Nelson, President, STC New England:
“I didn’t learn about the seriousness of stress until it was partly to blame for putting me in the hospital. When I recovered, I knew I had to make a change. I used to think meditation was not for me – I pictured a bunch of New-Agey types sitting in a circle breathing incense and chanting ‘Om.’ But my doctor and a coworker encouraged me to give Tom’s class a try, and it has been life-changing.”
