Address your Stress

Stress is like an iceberg. People can see 1/8th of it above the surface, but what about what’s below? People can’t let the iceberg sink them! What creates stress for them? Can they recognize it? How does it affect their body and mind? They need to learn coping strategies and practice stress reduction techniques.

There are three versions of this class to accommodate anyone’s scheduling needs: 30 minutes, 45 minutes, and 60 minutes. All three versions discuss the basics of stress: what stress is, the effect of stress on the body and mind, and the difference between real and perceived stress. The difference in the versions comes in the type and number of coping strategies and techniques. In the 30-minute class, participants will practice one technique, relaxation breathing. In the 45-minute class, participants will practice two techniques, relaxation breathing and guided imagery. In the 60-minute class, participants will practice 2 techniques, countering stressful thoughts and guided imagery.

Navigating Military Life: Honors, Customs, and Ceremonies

When people visit, live, or experience cultures different from the one they were raised in, they will observe certain customs, norms, or courtesies that are unlike what they are use to. For example, they will hear a different language being spoken or see different mannerisms being used. When looking back on that experience, they probably had certain feelings as they were going through it and that might have influenced them in some way.

Usually when people travel abroad, it is suggested that they learn key greetings, simple mannerisms, or basic norms about the culture. The military has a culture just like any other group. The majority of the customs and courtesies are steeped in history and tradition and play a vital role in the building of a team. These customs and courtesies and their related protocol are some of the things that make the military lifestyle unique and special.

It is beneficial to be familiar with military ceremonies and traditions for the same reasons it is important for travelers to learn about the foreign countries they travel to. Like the American traveler being inadvertently a representative of all things American in a foreign land, family members are representatives of Service Members and the military when attending events. The more knowledgeable one becomes, the more one can appreciate and value what these norms bring to military life.
