'Fight', 'Flight', or 'Freeze'? Anxiety can feel debilitating at times, but there is a reason for it. In this webinar, Rosie will speak to students about why we experience anxiety to help give them the context behind what our brain is doing. After better understanding our own feelings of anxiety, Rosie will then cover a technique in mindfulness that students can practice to strengthen their own coping mechanisms. 

This class can help anyone who has felt anxious before, or has dealt with feelings that are close to anxiety, or even for students who want to understand more about what anxiety is and how it can impact lives.
