How to Manage Your Stress to be More Productive
We have been hearing so much about stress lately it’s kinda stressing us out. Stress is a part of being human, something we have experienced since our existence began. Our body knows how to deal with it, in small doses. Short-term stress allows us to work under pressure, get stuff done, run farther and faster, and even balance our hormones. But unfortunately so many of us are holding onto our stress for longer that it’s wrecking our digestive and immune systems, and majorly impacting our sleep, weight, habits, what we eat, relationships and even our thoughts. This talk from health coach Jenna Granger will look into:
· The various types of stress and what they do for us and against us
· How to let go of habits that are caused by stress (like stress eating)
· How to use stress successfully and quick and easy ways to let go of the rest
· Simple productivity tips to keep you on your game
Join us Tuesday, April 5th @ 6-7pm @ The Tahoe Mill Collective for a free talk

Talk offered by Jenna Granger Health Coaching: Jenna Granger is a Health Coach, Wellness Educator, and Art of Living Teacher living in the Tahoe area emphasizing stress-free, mindful eating habits, listening to one's own body, and supporting all aspects of health (it's more than diet and exercise). Full bio here.
We've all been there: Standing in a 7-11 parking lot scarfing down an ice cream bar and hoping nobody is watching. That was Tahoe native Jenna Granger before she decided to become a holistic health coach.
In this talk, Jenna will lead an interactive discussion about how cravings aren't a weakness; we just need to learn how to deconstruct them to find the source. We will learn how energy levels, the food we are eating, and how all aspects of our lives affect our food cravings and what to do about them. We will have a 45-minute talk followed by questions, discussion, and yes, a healthy food sampling!
Jenna has been working as a health coach for the last two years in supporting people in finding balance with diet, lifestyle and exercise. She promotes balance not through restriction or deprivation, but through self love, fun, and empowerment.
The event is free and open to the public (and there will be food!).
