“2020 has been a year that certainly has had the potential to elevate stress levels of many people,” said Rockland Public Library, in a news release. “The global pandemic, political unrest, and now the Holiday season, on top of typical stressors, have made even some of the calmest people anxious.”
How do you respond to anxiety? What do you do when feeling stressed?
“First, know that you are not alone,” said the Library.
And then join librarians Jessie Blanchard and Patty King for an interactive talk about stress reduction on Thursday, Dec. 17, at 2 p.m. They will present multiple tips and techniques, including mindfulness, movement, and self-care. They will also share helpful resources that can serve as a stress reduction toolkit.
This event is intended for adults and young adults.
To sign-up for a Zoom link for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on the day of the event.
Beginning on Monday, December 14, adults and teens are invited to the Library to pick up a “Stress Less Bag,” filled with items which may help reduce anxiety. Supplies are limited and participation in the Thursday program is not required to obtain a bag.
