Burnaby Public Library and Bridge for Heath are presenting this workshop. Are you stressed and overwhelmed? If you are exhausted by daily demands and struggle with work-life balance, this workshop is for you. There is mounting research showing the harms of long-term exposure to stress. The good news is that we can take daily action towards stress reduction.

In this workshop, we will explore different factors that lead to stress. Bring a pen and paper as you will begin to create a stress management plan tailored to you and your life. Learn to say YES and NO in a way that empowers you to lead a more healthy, balanced lifestyle. Leave with concrete actions, tools to stay accountable, and reusable strategies for dealing with feeling overwhelmed in the future.
