Event Overview
Doing It All (And Living to Tell the Tale): Fundamentals of Stress & Tips to Beat It. Life can be exciting and in this fast-paced world, it is tempting to want to do and achieve as much as possible. Whether for financial gain, respect, adulation or personal satisfaction, many of us push ourselves to extremes. What are the physiological consequences and what are the main ways to successfully balance many responsibilities? I will use my background in health and social psychology to review some of the science behind stress and coping, and share key ways to deal well with life’s challenges.
