"Take some time for Relaxation" presented by Sharyn Bunn

When stress and tension build up in our bodies and minds it can begin to impact our mental health and ability to carry on with normal daily activities. When we have been experiencing stress for a long period of time or when we haven’t taken enough time away from work or other responsibilities, often high levels of physical and psychological tension stay with us for longer and longer periods. We may begin to experience increases in feelings of: frustration, irritability, anxiety, anger and nervousness. We may notice physical symptoms such as headaches, backaches, fatigue, and muscle tension. Relaxation is the process of letting go of tension and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system and our overall feelings of well-being.

This webinar aims to increase:
• Awareness of physical and psychological signs of stress and tension;
• Awareness of techniques to relax the body and mind to allow tension to reduce;
• Ability to engage relaxation strategies through participating in guided progressive muscle relaxation training.

Remember, we’re stronger together!
