PCI Webinar with Pat Wagner 

The Thinking Person’s Guide to Stress Management

Tuesday, June 21st from 10:30 am – 11:30 am ET

Competency: Personal Growth and Development

Sub-Category: Self Care

Stress management is more than popping vitamins, thinking happy thoughts, lifting weights, or avoiding empty calories. The key idea is that anticipating the impact of unhealthy stress is better than trying to fix the damage to your health and state of mind after the fact. You can learn to eliminate lifestyle choices that make stress worse, invest in the time to prepare for a stressful event or day, schedule micro-breaks during the work day, repair from the aftermath of difficult times, and prevent the worst situations that damage your health by making better choices.

Learn about free stress busters that work best for most people and that fit your personal style. How can you make your library a healthier workplace?

At the conclusion of webinar, participants will be able to:

·       Identify behaviors at home and work that lead to unhealthy stress and swap them out for healthier habits.

·       Implement workplace rituals that promote wellness, including better focus and energy.

·       Develop personal routines that include enough sleep, a healthier diet, and daily exercise.
