About This Workshop
In 2019, the National Institute of Health (NIH) wrote an article, “Can you get PTSD/Trauma by watching TV?” They concluded that “TV viewing following trauma exposure may be a marker of vulnerability for developing PTSD and also a consequence of having PTSD. High TV viewing levels may be linked with ineffective coping strategies or social isolation, which increase risk of developing PTSD” (Source).
With information at our fingertips, we can watch what’s going on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our exposure to war is constant, but how does the body handle it? Seeing horrific things on the news can cause significant anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress—which impact us in many different ways. Yoga is one tool available that can help mitigate these symptoms.
In this workshop you’ll learn the signs of over-exposure and tools to help protect your mental wellness during these challenging times, plus:
- Understand the history & impact of media on your mental health
- Identify symptoms through a simple checklist approach
- Learn solutions to combat stress using proven tools such as: yoga, meditation, EFT/Tapping, breathwork, and affirmations
