Learn to deal with stress, find relief strategies at OCL program

Stress, that internal reaction a person experiences from trying to cope with one’s environment or interpersonal relationships, has been demonstrated to make a person sick and even lead to health complications that can kill.

Ocean County Library will present a program by Khadi Madama about managing stress, keeping up morale, and remaining motivated in these challenging times.

Madama, a self-described stress relief advocate, said, “Stress will make you old, stress will injure you and make you sick and stress will kill you if you don’t get a hold of an easy to use means, both on the job and off, to manage it. Stress relief is the new gold and your life may depend on it.”

Her relief program, “Being Successful and Stressed,” has been used by a branch of the U.S. Navy’s Fleet and Family Services as part of their suicide prevention program, as well as for relieving the stress of the families of deployed military.

She was also the host of the television show “Yours Truly, Yoga,” a twice-weekly, 30-minute program that aired between 1996 and 2000.

Madama will speak at the following library branches:

Toms River, 101 Washington St. 732-349-6200 or 609-971-0514, 7 p.m. Mon. Jan. 6.
