Living A Less Stressed, More Flourishing Life

Presented by Rita Schiano

Resilience Strategist Rita Schiano offers an educating and entertaining exploration of the choices that determine our direction, and the decisions that ultimately dictate our destiny. 

The way stress impacts us does not necessarily have to be negative. We have a capacity for resilience, behaviors, thoughts, skills, and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone. 

Rita discusses ways to manage stress through resilience, the characteristics of resilient people, as well as personal resiliency skills and attitudes, and how to strengthen them.
