How Do I Get Out of My Head?

This presentation will share different techniques to get out of the circle of worrying about the future and the couldof/shouldofs of the past.  It will provide different practices that can be applied during stressful times such as a pandemic or really at any time when the mind starts to spin. It will help participants bring their thoughts to the present moment by starting with a short meditation and reflection exercise. It will present the science on the benefits of meditation, journaling, and yoga. The tools and exercises used during the session will be shared for participants to add to their toolbox in order to relieve stress. It will conclude with additional resources and an open discussion for those who want to express how they feel after practicing the techniques or how they are coping during Covid-19.  Attendees will learn tools for relieving stress and the science on the benefits of meditation, journaling, and yoga, and engage in thoughtful dialogue on what tools they have found useful to relieve stress.
