Relaxation “Micro-Moments” and Winding Down Techniques

Wednesday, August 17, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The problem with most attempts to adopt stress-management or self-care routines is that they require time, effort and planning. The reality for many people who have stressful jobs is that they are too physically exhausted and mentally depleted by the end of the day to initiate activities commonly recommended to reduce stress in their lives. The trick is to intervene via multiple “micro-moments” of relaxation or mindful practices which only take 15 to 60 seconds. These moments of relaxation help bring stress levels down during the workday and interrupt the steady escalation of stress that creates physical and mental exhaustion. Also addressed: simple winding-down routines that can end the day in a calming, mindful way.

Workshop Objectives:

This training will help you: – Describe how stress escalates through the day and leads to exhaustion – Consider whether your present stress reduction habits may be adding to your overall stress – Understand how simple short moments of relaxation throughout the day can permit you reduce stress and conserve energy – Practice brief mindful moments of relaxation and learn how to integrate these moments into your workday – Understand the value of winding-down routines that foster a sense of safety and personal control.
