Stress can have long-term negative consequences for our health. Mindfulness and learning to live more mindfully can counter those negative effects.
All of us experience stress on a regular basis. Not all stress is bad stress. Eustress (good stress) is stress that we feel able to cope with, feel challenged by and is welcomed. It has been linked to well-being and life satisfaction. Distress is when we perceive the stressor as negative and we feel inadequate to deal with the stress. Our bodies’ physiological response (the “fight or flight”) helps us survive. However, when activated too frequently it can have long-term negative consequences for our health. This workshop will describe those negative consequences and teach you how the practice of mindfulness, and living mindfully, can counter these effects.
