The Office of Benefits & Worklife brings you several workshops and webinars to help manage your stress by finding healthy coping strategies, organizing your finances, and taking a closer look at how you use food to manage your emotions.
Guide to Tackling Emotional Eating
Do you ever turn to food to soothe your feelings? It's no secret that stress eating is real. It can be distracting and comforting but have us feeling frustrated or disappointed—especially when it impacts our weight. During the Guide to Tackling Emotional Eating webinar, a WW (Weight Watchers reimagined) coach will walk through techniques to help quiet the part of the brain that activates our stress response. You do not need to be a WW member to join.
Register here for the session, which will be offered from 12:15 to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 27.
Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times
Too much stress can leave us feeling frazzled and fatigued, whether because of events in our personal lives, changes at work, national crises, or all three. In the Strategies for Managing Stress in Challenging Times workshop, clinicians from the mySupport onsite clinical team will discuss how Johns Hopkins' employee assistance program can help employees and their family members by describing common reactions to stress, and sharing tools for healthy coping. After completing this session, participants will be able to:
