Wednesday Wellness Series, Part 4: Gratitude, Compassion and Empathy
Stress for small business owners can not only affect personal health but can also take a toll on the success of the business. The American Psychological Association estimates that the U.S. economy loses more than $500 billion due to workplace stress. The current challenges associated with the pandemic, evolving regulations, changing technology, and complex client and employee relationships, are just a few of the items a SMB owner must deal with, often daily. This workshop series will provide the small business owner participants with tools and techniques that can be employed at home or in the office to reduce and manage daily stress utilizing yoga and other proven techniques. It addresses the following topics: recognizing stress in our bodies, understanding its physiological response, stress managing techniques, and empowering perspectives and responses to stress. Participants are encouraged to participate in all four sessions for full benefit. Part 4 and, the last in our Wednesday Wellness series, will begin with a very brief introduction and refresh of previous sessions. This session will round out our journey on managing stress and focus on the importance of gratitude; feeling compassion for ourselves and others; and, learning to empathize. Activities may include developing a gratitude journal, guided meditation, and movement.
