Sorry for the late notice but I’ve got a little gig coming up Wednesday night in SE Portland. Please join us! Oh, and it’s free.

Stress 2.0 A New Way to Understand StressSTRESS 2.0- A New Way to Understand Stress
Date and time: 
Wednesday Oct 22nd 7:00-8:30
Place: New Seasons Market 7Corners- 1954 SE Division St, PDX

In this talk, you’ll learn how the choices you make every day impact the bigger picture of your health and how the whole premise of “stress management” sets us up for fatigue, illness, frustration, and overwhelm. Stress 2.0 is a paradigm for breaking down all of the things that impact our health on a daily basis so that you can easily identify what you can control and what you can’t control. It’s a way to step back and assess your health in a new way. After your short time with Dr. Samantha you’ll

• Understand what your body does when it’s under stress, and why this can be a good thing.
• See how the choices you make on a daily basis can turn your normal stress response into an abnormal stress response.
• Discover the stressors that hide in plain sight affecting your health.
• Learn what you can control and what you can’t so you can make empowered choices.

Once you understand this, you can start making the most important changes to get you feeling great.

Hope you can make it Wednesday!
