Perhaps sensing the need for an intervention, my Quantum colleague, Ava Seave, recently highlighted a May 21 event, "Managing the stress in our lives: Help from the experts". The program is hosted by the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York (CBSAC/NY), but it's open to anyone interested in attending.
Participants will have a chance to ask questions in a group setting. If you're shy about your particular brand of stress, the evening event also includes a chance to speak with an expert in a one-on-one setting. If that's not enough, there will be drinks and hors d'oeuvres at a restaurant that features Indian-Latin cuisine.
The program will cover both "bad" and "good" stress, focusing on ways to "fortify body and mind". I wonder if "post something useful every day" is on the list.
I don't normally do "wellness" posts, but work in publishing certainly can be a source of stress these days. The event could help, even if it winds up being more about using hors d'oeuvres to find your "off" button.
The discussion takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Vermilion Restaurant in New York (480 Lexington Avenue, between 46th and 47th Streets). Admission is $25 for CBSAC/NY members and $40 for non-members. It's worth registering ahead of time, as the cost at the door will be $60. That price seems stressful.
