What is stress and what does it do to your body

Almost one hundred colleagues met on February 9 at lunchtime to listen to Tom Meyers, Osteopathe and DeStress coach, and learn again something that everybody knows but somehow we never apply, or very rarely…

The future sounds stressed, with one in five people experiencing burnout by 2020 and a global bill of around 600 000 000 euros only related to unmanaged stress.

Give yourself time to reAset, give your body time to unwind and experience moments of peace and quietness. As it seems that the topic is really “hot” we’ll be back with some ideas of easy exercises to destress.

 

Have you attended the workshop? Your input is very valuable as it will help us define further activities, leave us a comment here or send an email to cancer-support@ec.europa.eu

Oxygen – 20.09.2015

2015poster_SEMPRECONLORO

 

On 20 September, our colleague, Sarah, is organising in Ispra the annual event to raise funds to go towards research into finding a cure for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma.  This is the event website: www.sempreconloro.org (Italian only for now). The event will be held in Ispra in collaboration with the JRC Triathlon Club “Oxygen”.

If you scroll down the first page of this website, you will find a link in the lower right hand corner “click to see video”,  showing the devastating effects this rare brain tumour had on Sarah’s son, as well as his gradual recovery thanks to what was a successful clinical trial for him. This gives hope that researchers may be on the right path, but in order to continue their research, they need funding. For more info contact CANCER-SUPPORT@ec.europa.eu

The Project “Arts en Scène et en Saisons” (art on stage and in seasons) is built on the wish of cultural exchanges between Europe and South-America. Brussels, as a cosmopolitan City, is an ideal location to allow for such a meeting of cultural paths. The project is conceived as a multicultural bridge opened on sharing and diversity. The programme includes, in a first part, narrations in music and images speaking about the planet, the seven arts and science around the four elements and the seasons and their relationships with humans. Each event will honour one country through light meals and concert, theater or dance. The diagramme below gives an overview of the round of events planned for the 2015 season.
