Living a Stress-Free Life

Feeling stressed out? Research shows that people can learn to better handle life's challenges and keep stress to a minimum. Learn how at a free seminar at MedStar Franklin Square.

Stress can be harmful to body, mind and behavior.

It puts wear and tear on vital life systems and can diminish cognitive functioning, lead to depression and contribute to the widespread problem of obesity. The good news is that research also shows that training can enable people to better handle life's challenges and keep stress to a minimum.

Learn how you can avoid stress, or at least keep its impact to a minimum. Special guest speaker Joseph Napora, PhD, LCSW-C, will present a free community seminar on Stress-Free Living at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center.

Join us and learn how most stress is caused by mindless thinking and acting, and that tension and despair are often the consequences of functioning on "automatic pilot" based on old habits, patterns and beliefs. A mindful approach to life's challenges is the key to having maximum control even in the worst circumstances.
