The holidays may be over, but this is still a stressful time of year for many people. That's why Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) will hold two post-holiday stress management seminars, one in Narragansett and another in Providence, on January 26, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
In Narragansett, the seminar will take place at the Narragansett Public Library, 35 Kingstown Road. The Providence event will be at The Health & Wellness Institute, 291 Promenade Street. All members of the public are invited to participate.
Studies show that stress is a contributing factor in as much as 80 percent of illnesses. The BCBSRI stress management seminars will offer information on how stress affects the body, show attendees how to identify the causes of stress, and allow them to practice relaxation techniques to develop a lifelong plan to become stress resilient.
As schedules are subject to change, please visit the BCBSRI Community Wellness Calendar for updates.
