Mind-Full of Stress

by  McMillen Health

Program image

Mind-full of Stress examines stress and its effects on the brain and body. The mind-body connection will be explored to demonstrate that what you think, feel, and act has a physical effect on the body.  Students will identify examples of the fight, flight, or freeze response in humans. The different categories of stress will be introduced – positive, tolerable, and toxic stress. A variety of feeling words will be presented to grow students’ emotional vocabulary.  Participants will have opportunities to practice this new vocabulary as they identify emotions experienced in a variety of real-life scenarios. Several self-regulation techniques will be introduced, and students will practice a self-regulation technique.
