Kent Memorial Library in Suffield is offering Living A Less Stressed, More Flourishing Life, a presentation by Rita Schiano, which will be held on Tuesday, February 14 at 2:00 p.m. at the Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street. The program is funded by The Friends of the Kent Memorial Library. The presentation is an educating and entertaining exploration of the choices that determine our direction, and the decisions that ultimately dictate our destiny. The way stress impacts us does not necessarily have to be negative. We have a capacity for resilience, behaviors, thoughts, skills, and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone. Rita discusses what is resilience, the characteristics of resilient people, as well as personal resiliency skills and attitudes and how to build them. The presentation runs 60-minutes. Please sign up for this free program at the Kent Memorial Library, 860-668-3896 or at suffield-library.org.
