Stress Management and Resiliency Training a Success

Last week, Scott Koon presented Mayo Clinic’s Stress Management and Resiliency Training (SMART), and we are so grateful for the wonderful group in attendance.

It was a pleasure to host the event, and several of you have told us how you have used the material already. For example, one person said he had used one of the techniques to help him relax after seeing a particularly difficult news item on television.

SMART is a structured program developed by Mayo Clinic. It is scientifically proven to decrease symptoms of stress and anxiety, and increase well-being, resilience, self-regulation, mindfulness, happiness, and positive health behavior. SMART addresses two aspects of human experience – attention and interpretation.

We want to thank Scott for coming from Minnesota to teach and inspire the Johnson City community and for giving us some tools to live happier, more peaceful lives.
