Stress Management Group

Are you worried, stressed, or tense a

lot?

Then maybe this new group is for you. It’s normal to feel

tense, stressed, and worried when the moment puts you under pressure.

day. But, it’s not okay when those feelings of worry, stress, and

being tense keep us from doing what we want in life. This group can

help you learn how to reduce how much tension and stress you feel and

help you better control your worrying thoughts. Give it a try!

Group

Feb. 11

Enhancing Wellbeing and Chronic

Health Conditions

One of the most common reactions to

being diagnosed with a chronic illness is a strong desire to return

to “normal,” so you can enjoy the sense of well-being you felt

when your body was healthy. However, returning to “normal” may be

an unrealistic goal if your health condition has no cure. Research

has shown that the stress you have when dealing with a chronic health

condition can affect your immune system and ultimately your overall

body, mind, and spirit. The good news is that we all can learn ways

to better manage our stress and make changes in our lives that will

not only improve our physical health but will also improve our

moods.

11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Native American Community Clinic,

1213 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis, MN. For more information or to
