TechnoStress the Topic at Seminary Workshop

The Moravian Theological Seminary is conducting a two evening workshop, Moving Beyond TechnoStress - Developing a Healthy Relationship with Technology. The Workshop will be held on Wednesday, October 21 and October 28, 7:00-9:30 p.m., in the Bahnson Center, 60 W. Locust Street in Bethlehem.

Computers were designed to bring efficiency and convenience into people’s lives. For many, technology has complicated their lives and they experience frustration and a feeling of powerlessness. This course will explore some of the sources of technostress, by assessing how technology affects our bodies, minds, and spirits. The course will explore ways to transform stress-producing beliefs into healthy ones, time management skills, and exercises to restore peace and balance will be presented. The course will include user-friendly yoga, deep breathing, relaxation and meditation
