Report of the June meeting 2017

Alan Wise gave the second part of his talk titled Journey into the Mind. Alan is a clinical psychologist and talked mainly about stress, what it is and how to beat it. Stress symptoms include memory lapses, worry and depression. He then went on about worry, which is simply anticipation of what is going to happen, fear of debt, poor health and change. Some ways of dealing with stress include avoiding negative thoughts, trying not to complain, seeing the best in others and having no regrets. Alan finished his session with a short relaxation demonstration. A most interesting afternoon.
