On Thursday November 22, join Women’s Brain Health Initiative’s Young Person’s Cabinet for the first event in Series 3 of Engaging Millennial Minds // Peace of Mind.
Statistics show that millennials may be the most stressed, anxious group in history, and are less able to manage it than any other generation. This anxiety boils down to feeling worried or nervous about the future, or feeling looming uncertainty in general.
Top contributors include a tough job market, student debt, ambition addiction, choice overload and/or career crises. Further, millennials are dealing with unprecedented challenges involving a constantly changing political and economic climate, along with demanding technology-based lifestyles.
To effectively combat stress and make ourselves less anxious, we need to activate our body’s natural relaxation response. We can do this by practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, rhythmic exercise, and yoga. Fitting these activities into our lives can help reduce everyday stress, boost our energy and mood, and improve our mental and physical health.
Enjoy light refreshments, and a chance to win fabulous door prizes.
