Managing Stress – A Workshop for Parents

Mr. Mecklem the principal and I gave a presentation to parents during our Visitation Day last week. The pdf of the slides presented can be viewed below. The workshop was a follow up to the work Mr. Mecklem and OIS counselor Melissa Lamug have been doing with our MYP students. My big take away from making the presentation is that one’s outlook on stress is the most important factor. Viewing it as a “performance-enhancer” or something exciting to propel you to do your best is a much healthier outlook than looking at stress as something bad or unhealthy.

Finding ways to clear your mind and taking care of your body through proper sleep, exercise, the arts, etc.  is also important.
