We all know stress is bad for you, but just how bad? Long-term stress damages the brain, impairing everything from emotion and impulse control to certain big-picture, analytical thinking. Yet, as fragile as this area of the brain is, it’s also very resilient and can repair itself. Join us for a special viewing of Dr. Anthony Goodman's seminar on mental health and stress reduction. Start taking control of the stress in your life with three powerful techniques: relaxation, meditation, and mindfulness. Sponsored by BrainMatterNow Foundation & the Friends of the Library of St. Johns County.
