Don’t take it with you: Healthy strategies for managing workplace stress

Working provides so much in our lives: life enrichment, connection, purpose, joy, income… but it can also create stress which can snowball and become overwhelming, diminishing the benefits and fulfillment we experience by working. 

  You are cordially invited to join the Southern Ute Vocational Rehabilitation Program at the Sky Ute Casino on Wednesday, May 15 from 10 am – noon to attend a presentation and discussion about healthy ways to manage workplace stress.  

Many things can be overwhelming in our jobs: the sheer volume of work, the intensity of the work, even the anger and stress of those we serve, and those we serve alongside, that sometimes is directed at us. Join us for an engaging seminar focused on ways to keep work at work, protect our sense of well-being, and release stress so we can live in a more balanced, joyful way. 


Objectives – participants will gain a conceptional framework for leaving the stress of work at work and walk away with protective strategies such as: 


  • Understanding the neurobiological impact of workplace stress on our brains, nervous systems, and behaviors. 
  • Understanding the relationship between mindfulness, boundaries, and well-being. 
  • In-the-moment resources to use when stress is at its highest, and how to transition when you get home.
