Tweak Your Mind

The pace of our world seems to be quickening at every turn. Many older adults experience unexpected stress and pressure to keep up with a world that sometimes feels like it's whizzing by. Dr. Hans Selye of Canada, known as the stress doctor, first wrote about the impact of stress on health in the 1930s. Stress susequently became a major topic of medical and scientific study. Together we will discuss factors that add stress to our daily lives and strategize ways to avoid stress-inducing situations or deal with with them in a more positive way. We will practice re-framing negative situations into positives. This is a class where your opinion counts and where we can disagree with total respect for one another. In an effort to avoid adding even more stress from the "guilt" of not following doctor's advice perfectly, we will study the topic with and open mind, a good sense of humor, and a positive attitude.
