Overview: Crunch got you down? Overwhelmed at work? Come recharge your battery and take home some tools you can use when you're burned out. In this session, you'll learn how to deal with difficult emotional states while on the job, learn fast and easy strategies for changing your state without having to take a "time out", and finally, engaging in a few short guided meditations that can take you from freaked to fine in under 5 minutes. More psychological than spiritual, this talk can help you take care of your mind in tough times.
