From high blood pressure to obesity,

stress can make health problems worse.

No matter where you are, stress can find you; so what better time than now to arm yourself with tools to fight it?

Look no further than Mercy Women’s Heart Center, which kicks off monthly “Stress-Less Class" this spring. The next class, slated for Oct. 8, will focus on yoga and massage therapy.

Sessions run from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. and will continue the same time on the following dates:

  • 10/8/15 Yoga and Massage Therapy
  • 11/12/15 Diet and Stress
  • 12/10/15 Holiday Stress

The $10 courses will offer advice to women on how to change attitudes about everyday stress and provide coping skills to reduce the effect of stressful events.

“While taking care of the external you, let’s not forget about what’s happening on the inside.  Stress can weaken the body and mind,” said Auvia Miller with Mercy Nutrition Center and Healthstyles. “The stress-less classes can help you find a calming center.”
