Healing Stress and Anxiety:  A Monthly Support Group for Mind-Body Wellness

220 West Penn Street, Long Beach, NY 11561
7 – 8 pm

Whether you are experiencing major life changes—moving, family pressure, or health issues, for example—stress can affect your mind, body, and spirit.  Worrying about stressful events adds another layer of pressure.

Our support group, which started last summer to address anxiety issues related to Hurricane Sandy, has evolved into a monthly meeting where we share experiences and activities for lowering stress and anxiety levels while promoting mind-body wellness.  We hope you will join us.

Donations are welcome, but there is no fee for any of these meetings.

Tuesday, October 6,  7–8 pm:  Prepping For The Third Anniversary

As the third anniversary of Hurricane Sandy approaches and media coverage intensifies, it is uncommon to experience surges of emotion, dreams, and flashbacks.  In addition to discussing these issues, this session will offer fast-acting stress relief techniques.

Tuesday, November 10,  7–8 pm:  Managing Holiday Stress

Preparing for the holidays can stir up a lot of stress around family, social obligations, and financial pressure.  This session will help us keep our stress levels down during this hectic time of year.
