The Art of Relaxation

Today’s life is fast-paced and leaves little time to relax and decompress. Greater pressure is being put on all of us to do more. The result is that many of us have lost the ability to sit still and simply be with ourselves. This session will explore personal stress triggers and review some practical, easy techniques to make brief relaxation moments a natural part of everyday life.

To secure your spot, please email hrtraining.development@keyano.ca.

November 25 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm

Mindfulness and Reducing the Effects of Stress

Mindfulness helps to decrease stress, increase resilience, improve personal productivity, develop connections with others, and augment the ability to experience more joy and peace. This webinar will focus on understanding mindfulness and will assist participants in practicing techniques that can be implemented into everyday life at work and at home.
