Seminar helps with stress

Stress is a normal and enjoyable part of life. But unresolved, prolonged stress can become a killer. Workshop in Rock Creek on Oct. 8.

Feel more relaxed, peaceful, energized and confident with powerful stress management solutions mastered at a seminar entitled “Cooling Down the Stress Soup,” coming to Rock Creek Oct.8 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Author and international speaker Cameron Johnston will conduct this unique and high-impact stress management seminar. He is the stress fitness coach from the Silver Hills Lifestyle Centre in the Okanagan. The seminar will be held at the Rock Creek Medical Centre. For information call Harold Zinner at 250-446-2517.

Tens of thousands of participants across Canada, the U.S.A. and Australia have already benefited from this compelling, effective and fun stress management seminar. It teaches you how to live it up without burning out. Participants master eight practical and effective ways to manage stress effectively and prosper in our 24/7 world.

The seminar is designed to help anyone struggling with the pressures of modern life and needing practical solutions on how to cope effectively.

“Stress is a normal and enjoyable part of life,” says Cameron Johnston, the seminar presenter. “But unresolved, prolonged stress can become a killer. The latest research indicates that stress is a catalyst in many of the most dramatic killers of our day including heart disease and cancer.

“Understanding and appreciating the joys of stress while learning stress management skills is essential today,” he continues. “Helping individuals develop effective stress hardiness techniques while improving coping reserves is the primary objective of this seminar. Participants will evaluate their stress, identify sources of destructive stress, and develop a personal success plan to control stress.”

Using the analogy of cooling down hot soup, seminar participants learn how to cool down the negative effects of stress by controlling the stress response, thinning the soup with relaxation, stirring the soup with adequate physical activity and playing with the soup with a good sense of humour.

Participants will become aware of any poisons in the soup like deep-seated stressors and learn how to resolve them. Plus a special feature on burnout: “What if… you already ate the soup too hot!?”

A demanding job, too many responsibilities, challenging family relationships and the fast pace of modem life leaves many exhausted and joyless. Add inadequate coping techniques to this cycle of chronic tension and anxiety and few can live for long without serious physical and mental breakdown. This stress management seminar can help you break that dangerous cycle and improve your resilience and stress hardiness.

Johnston himself is a burnout survivor. He has a Masters of Science Degree in public health and his thought-provoking and practical approach makes the seminar both entertaining and informative.
