Research has shown that stress is one of the top three causes of employee disengagement, absenteeism, and decreased performance. Organizations that have implemented evidence-based workplace wellness initiatives have been able to significantly improve the physical and psychological health of their employees, while also increasing overall productivity and staff engagement. 

Join us as Dawn Michanowicz, retired Master Municipal Clerk and Advanced Practitioner of Energy Medicine (Eden Method™) discusses the why’s and how’s of feeling stressed, anxious and under pressure – especially during these challenging times. She will demonstrate twelve easy to follow techniques that you can apply immediately in your current workplace to decrease emotional stress, lower anxiety, reduce physical tension and even improve your immunity. The twelve protocols (or steps), designed specifically for professionals in a work environment (including remote work places), will be your “destress toolbox” as you practice and incorporate them into your daily life.

The instructor’s teaching style is informal, participatory and sprinkled with humor, so come prepared to enjoy yourself while you learn about our mind and body’s extraordinary ability to recharge, get grounded and stay healthy with proven techniques.
