Periodic workshops

Surviving VCE

Being a student can be stressful, and as the year progresses the reality of the workload can be overwhelming. There are three areas of life that contribute to stress, and these can all be triggered by habits such sitting at a desk for hours studying, lack of exercise, sugar and coffee while studying, and emotional pressure and  expectations.

Research has now clearly shown that ongoing or excessive stress will affect the brain’s capacity to function well, to learn and be alert.

Emily Galbraith is a recent graduate from the RMIT Chiropractic program and understands first hand the impacts that stress can have on the body. She has developed a 1.5 hour free workshop entitled “Surviving VCE”, which will be held at Healing Well where she will share some simple techniques that students can take home and put into practice to help reduce stress, develop a clear state of mind, and work efficiently.

Emily’s free stress management workshop for VCE students will be held at Healing Well in Castlemaine.

Date:  12/5/2017.
Time: 6:30pm
Cost:  FREE

“Loving kindness gives birth to a natural compassion. 
The compassionate heart holds the pain and sorrow of our life, and of all beings with mercy and tenderness.  
It is this tender heart that holds the power to transform the world”.
