Some experts say that the way we learn to deal with stress during childhood,
will be the way we deal with stress for the rest of our lives.

How can we better understand our responses to stress and make time for self-care? And how do manage it all when we add in jobs, relationships, family responsibilities?

Experts are here to discuss forming healthy habits and to share strategies on how to be kinder to ourselves: from paying attention to our own needs to set boundaries.
