Living in the 21st century can be stressful on any individual, and research shows that caregivers and care providers have a high incidence of recognized levels of stress. Balancing the responsibilities of home life, work, children or parents is especially challenging and often leads to insurmountable daily stress. This one hour and 21 minute lecture discusses concrete tools that laypersons and caregivers alike can utilize on a daily basis to combat fatigue and stress. This DVD includes descriptive step-by-step relaxation techniques, meditation exercises and a guided imagery experiential.

The Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) response will be discussed, and rich examples of how the mind can directly affect the physical body will be highlighted. Definitions on the relaxation response and the stress response will be covered, providing a better understanding of the mind-body connection that directly affects overall wellness. This lecture can aid and assist the individual to retrain the mind and automatic responses to daily stress.
