Title: Just Breathe: Influencing Your Stress Between Appointments
Lead Presenter: Jason Higa
Date: October 08, 2021    Time: 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm
Room: Zoom Room 1
Abstract: The day-to-day life of an Academic Advisor comes with a lot of stress; which, if left unchecked, can lead to fatigue, anxiety, restlessness, lack of motivation or focus, irritability, depression, and other physical and mental health issues. With constant back-to-back appointments and other work commitments, it is difficult to find the time to relieve our stress. Breathing exercises offer a quick way to relax, focus, reset, and/or energize ourselves during our short breaks.

In this presentation you will have an opportunity to practice different breathing techniques, explore how they manipulate your autonomic nervous system, and learn why they are effective in influencing stress.
