In an emergency, fear and anxiety are a natural reaction. However, there are ways to prepare for those tense, anxious moments with an emotional toolkit that helps you cope and respond effectively during a disaster. Brain research suggests that mindfulness can lower blood pressure, reduce depression and anxiety, and rewire parts of the brain. Prepare now by exploring simple tips and tools at an engaging, interactive webinar with disaster preparedness experts from Oregon State University Extension. At the end of the presentation, lines will be opened for discussion with participants.
