The Price We pay for a Stressful Life

Stress has become synonymous with everyday living. We think of stress as an inevitable part of our life and feel that it is the price we pay for enjoying all the technological advances and modern conveniences. We don’t realize that the price is higher than we ever imagined and equally importantly, that we can make lifestyle choices that reduce if not eliminate the stress from becoming the biggest health challenge of our time.  The pharmaceutical industry, in trying to “solve” the problem of stress and anxiety has only made things worse.  In this meeting, we will explore some of the devastating emotional and physical consequences of stress. We will also explore some simple, short- term but effective, non-chemical interventions that give us a break from the stress and improve our health and vitality. We will also look at longer term solutions that have a lasting impact on our quality of life.

The Closet of Greater Herndon

The Closet is a nonprofit thrift shop in the heart of historic downtown Herndon, Virginia.

The Closet was founded in 1974 by a handful of churches to assist low-income families. Over the years, its mission has expanded and The Closet has become a significant resource for the greater Herndon area. It continues to be a source of low-cost clothing and household necessities for families and individuals on a tight budget. It also donates clothing to truly needy individuals, and uses its profits to support worthwhile community programs. Unsold items are donated to needy communities in the western part of the state.
