Key Ways to De-clutter Your Life and Reduce Stress (Workshop)
Did you know that a positive outlook can not only improve the quality of your life, but also actually extend the length of your life? A National Institutes of Health study showed optimists were up to 33% less likely to die of various causes during an eight-year period. Attitude really is everything!
If you’re interested in improving your outlook, and thus your quality of life and life expectancy, there are many small, simple steps you can take to become a more positive person. One of these simple steps might surprise you: de-clutter your life.
Hofstra University Continuing Education (CE) is happy to announce our newest workshop “De-clutter Your Life to Reduce Stress”. In this workshop, you’ll learn the signs and symptoms of stress and anxiety, the impact of stress on your body, triggers for stress and anger, and how to feel more empowered and motivated. You’ll learn, in essence, how to get rid of all the extraneous “noise” and simplify, which will affect your whole life in positive ways.
Our instructor for this important topic is therapist, author, and positive psychology educator Diane Lang.
