The Urban Herbalist Team invite you to an Evening at The Common, where the topic is STRESS! Come and join us for:

In small doses, stress can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. It is when you’re constantly in flight or fight mode for an extended period of time that your mind and body pay the price.

Do you feel fatigued and drained, not sleeping well, anxious and overwhelmed?

If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and “blue” it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance. You can protect yourself — and improve how you think and feel — by learning how to recognise the signs and symptoms of chronic stress and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects.

We will look at how stress mechanisms work and give you some helpful stress-coping strategies including lifestyle changes, diet, and natural medicines.

The evening will finish with a short mindfulness meditation and there will be time for questions.
