OSU Extension in Ashtabula County is pleased to share that our local Women in Agriculture group will be sponsoring a workshop titled “Mindfulness and Dealing with Stress” on Saturday, December 16, 2017. This workshop will be held from 9:30 to 12:00 noon. The holidays can be a stressful time as family conflicts can surface and financial struggles can become more apparent. Join us during this program to learn how to manage stressors more effectively.
During this program, Marie Economos, OSU Family & Consumer Sciences Extension Educator in Trumbull County will teach on mindfulness and how it can help reduce stress in your life. Marie will share stress reduction strategies based on the research and work of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn who developed the mindfulness-based stress reduction program. Following Marie’s presentation, Emily Compan, representative of Young Essentials Oils in Andover, Ohio will discuss the many natural uses and benefits of using essential oils. Following the presentations, participants will make a whipped gingerbread sugar scrub to take home and enjoy. The day will end with everyone having the chance to relax and share a few laughs during lunch at noon.
The registration fee for this program is $15 per person and reservations are requested by December 13, 2017. If you have any questions please call 440-576-9008. A complete registration flyer can be obtained at: Mindfulness Program Flyer
