Working on Wellness – Stress

University of Illinois Springfield Recreational Sports is spotlighting Stress – The “silent killer” as part of a Working on Wellness (WOW) series workshop.

The session will take place on Friday, November 13, 2009 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in the TRAC Multi-Purpose Room.

Instructors will teach you how stress is the “silent killer” and how it relates to heart attacks, you’ll learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of stress and the importance of positive thinking and self talk.

“Everyone views stress differently, everyone has different stressors in their lives and everyone is different, so this will help you pinpoint which stressors effect you in your daily life,” said Amanda Jillson, assistant director of recreational sports.

The session will also teach relaxation techniques, assertiveness techniques and communication skills to deal with stress. Participants will also develop an individualized stress management plan.

The event is free and open to any member of the UIS Community. Participants do not have to be registered TRAC members to take part.

Contact Amanda Jillson at 206-8400 or to reserve your seat in this informative workshop.
