Central Coast Voices: How to deal with stress

May 2, 2018

Broadcast date: 5/3/2018

Are you feeling stressed out by things in your life? Stress can have a variety of causes such as family problems, issues with employment, a hard time at school, financial difficulties, poor health, or even the death of a loved one. While some stress can be good for you, if stress becomes chronic it can result in anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure and even a weakened immune system. Stress has even been shown to contribute to health conditions such as depression, obesity and heart disease. Learning healthy ways to manage stress is vital for maintaining your overall health.

Join Fred Munroe as he speaks with Dr. Hannah Roberts a licensed clinical psychologist, co-founder of Thrive SLO and lecturer in the Psychology and Child Development Department at Cal Poly, Katie Boucher, AMFT, support group facilitator with the Cancer Support Community and Central Coast Treatment Center, and Katie Dutcher, MA, Founding Teacher at Monterey Bay Meditation Studio and Mindfulness Coach at Flourish & Bloom, as they discuss the importance of stress management and how you can reduce your stress levels and work towards regaining control of your life.
