TOPS 0077

Eileen R. led a discussion on the booklet “Stress Management.” She said everyone has to deal with stress in their life, some good and some bad. We all experience stress differently, and we all cope with it differently. The idea is to develop positive and healthful coping strategies, including ways to cope that leave physical health and correct weight intact.
