Information about Dr Maroon lecture Topic:

Abstract: Overworked, overwhelmed, over committed, over anxious, and over extended. More and more Americans report these symptoms of burnout. It affects both male and female of any age and all professions. In a recent Gallup Poll, 40% of American workers were so stressed they felt no borders between work and life outside of their job. Essentially, many of us live to work! A lack of balance can have both physical and mental health consequences. Career burnout is often associated with symptoms of depression, anxiety, sleep problems, substance abuse and even suicidal ideation. It is also a commonly cited cause for heart disease, overeating, obesity and even diabetes.

Whether one has work-related or lifestyle-related stress, or both, distress arises, in part, from a lack of work/life balance or homeostasis. The aim of this lecture is to provide the most efficient tools to recognize the mental and physical signs of stress and to provide proven methods to manage and to reduce it. As part of the lecture, strategies will be provided to increase overall health, wellness and even longevity. It is open to all and will provide the most current information to assist anyone suffering from excessive stress and an unbalanced life.
