All of us around the world may be experiencing stress more often or more intensely because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, we have found that stress management is a much-needed topic during these times. With that in mind, we’ve created a week-long stress management webinar series designed to help you slow down, take a moment to breathe, and learn some new and helpful tools to support you.
Stress Management Webinar Series
The series features a new presenter each day of the week from August 24 to 28.
- Monday, August 24 @ 3 pm: What is Stress with ACHS Marketing team members Andy Pierson and Gillian Turner
- We all know what it’s like to feel stressed, but what IS stress exactly and how does it tend to affect us mentally and physically? Learn some basic ways to identify stress and also get some tips to manage it.
- Tuesday, August 25 @ 3 pm – Iron Shirt Qi Gong with ACHS Professor Anisa Kassim
- Qi Gong focuses our intent on one breath at a time, one movement at a time, which trains our mind to stay in the moment. The Iron Shirt Qi Gong series helps to strengthen our immune system as each movement enhances the associated meridian channel, thereby bringing our body into a relaxed state and into homeostasis.
- Wednesday, August 26 @ 3 pm – Holding Space for Yourself in Uncertain Times with ACHS Senior Admissions Advisor Molly Sykes

- Thursday, August 27 @ 3 pm – Leveraging Positive Stress to Promote Growth and Resiliency with ACHS Dean of Students Natalie DeWitt
- What if every time we encountered a problem, we took less fault personally, and instead, adopted a lens that promoted growth and commitment to our goals? In this webinar, we will discuss practicing Resiliency ABC’s, focusing on progress rather than goals, acquiring an adaptive mindset, and learning to perceive obstacles as challenges rather than dealbreakers. Join us to learn how to cultivate a mindset that fosters success, happiness, and resiliency.
- Friday, August 28 @ 3 pm – Mindfulness & Breathing: Practice to Relieve Tension & Stress in Present Times with ACHS Graduate Student Jennifer Langsdale
- Enjoy a simple and easy practice that will lift your spirits, clear your mind, and increase your focus at work, home, or during your educational studies. Jennifer is a 15 year yoga and wellness professional earning her Master’s in the Science of Aromatherapy at ACHS, and is looking forward to giving you valuable tips to get you through your semester and life practices.
Aromatherapy To Support Calm
During this crazy time, when everything feels out of our control, it feels good to tackle the things you can control such as your stress level. Our Calm is Contagious DIY Blend will help take the edge off and give you that tranquil vibe that is eluding us all right now. Diffuse it or add to a nasal inhaler and inhale deeply, or try combining Calm is Contagious Blend with your favorite carrier oil for a luxurious moisturizing rub after a bath. If you prefer you can even add this carrier oil blend to your bath and enjoy a de-stress soak. Another effective way to use it is to add it to argan oil which is great for hair health and give yourself a deep scalp massage and leave on overnight. De-stress and healthy hair!
