Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture
In this session, Brenda Mack will provide a brief overview of how stress affects our health and well-being. Exploring self-care practices as an option to deal with worrying and stress will occur. Participants will learn about a practical tool to build and implement an individualized stress-reduction plan. The importance of connecting with others as part of self-care will also be addressed. Be prepared to ask questions or make comments and the presenter will respond.
The topic for discussion will last approximately 40- 45 minutes and then an interactive Q & A period will utilize the remaining time. All sessions in the series will be recorded and made available after the session for those who could not make the live session or for those who would like to listen again.
