Coming Soon – Stress Reduction Class
Lake Country Associates is proud to announce an upcoming Stress Reduction Class, taught by Diane Cerven, MA, LPCC.
Diane writes: We all know that stress is becoming a chronic problem in most of our lives. We have too much to do, too short of time to complete it in, and too many worries. Our fast-paced and jam-packed lives are taking a toll on our mental and physical health. Many of us are not prepared to deal with this stress, which can impact relationships with friends, significant others, and children. Sometimes we just don’t have the ability or energy to appropriate deal with everything and everyone.
This is where the stress reduction class comes in. During this 12 week class (1.5 hours per session), we explore the different causes of stress and we practice different coping skills to deal with and reduce stress. Coping skills are ways that we can, either in our quiet times (yes those are important) or on the spot, address our stress, anger, and even sadness.
During the sessions you will learn about many different kinds of stress and the effects of that stress on your physical and mental health. We’ll then rehearse skills to reduce that stress. My goal for this group is that you will find several things that you like and can use in your day to day life to decrease your overall stress response. Many stresses in life are a constant, like bills, taxes, and filling out paperwork, taking care of family and yourself, so with knowledge on how you can cope with these stresses you can come to a more peaceful place in your life.
