Learn about Sleep & Stress with Jill Vroman
Join us for this informative and timely virtual workshop hosted by local resident and fitness expert, Jill Vroman from Southboro Wellness, on Monday, July 12 at 7:00 PM.
Registration is now available through Southborough Recreation.
The challenges over the last year have made it even more apparent just how important quality sleep really is for our minds and bodies. While we can't always change stressful situations, this workshop will help you learn how to manage the way our bodies react to stress through relaxation techniques that can lead to better sleep.
