Imagine an efficient, proven process to increase wellness and build resilience. Expressive writing is such a process and promises to help manage the challenges of our complex lives, including high stress, decreasing immune function, increasing chronic symptoms, deteriorating health, grief and overcoming trauma. It has been proven to increase immunity, improve overall health, and subsequently improve quality of life. So, if you're feeling stressed out, have undergone major life stressors, are feeling down and are looking for a way to express yourself, come join the Expressive Writing Fall Series! This is a 6-week long series and its purpose is to allow you to open up your heart, be vulnerable and write freely without the constraints of grammar and structure. Research has shown that expressive writing is known to decrease depression, stress, rumination and increase resilience. No writing experience is necessary for this series! Come join renowned Expressive Writing coach, John Evans, on this journey of self-discovery.Register every Wednesday prior to the event - November 6th, and 13thRSVP here: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2a9wH0RySB9ngZn or email HHL Lab Manager, Cuquis Robledo, at carolina.robledo@duke.edu with which dates you can attend and dietary preferences.
