Stressed out!? Join SpeakUp ReachOut for an evening of learning to relax! In this session, community members will be able to identify stress and the adverse effects of maladaptive stress responses, define the relaxation response, and develop practices to elicit the relaxation response. Participants will learn how stress affects the entire body, mind, and spirit as well as how the relaxation response can change the brain!
