Local Teacher Observes National Stress Awareness Day (Nov. 3) by launching Virtual CalmCon2021 Social and Life Skills Conference!

In observance of National Stress Awareness Day, local educator and author Tracey Pugh, founder of Sociallywize.com (social and life skills platform) announced the launching of the first ever CalmCon2021 Conference scheduled for Nov. 13 to bring together parents, families, peers and experts for a virtual self-paced Social & Life Skills conference focused on coping and stress anxiety.  

Local Teacher Observes National Stress Awareness Day

According to ISMA stress management, “Chronic stress, that is, failure to deal with it for a long time and remaining in a prolonged and constant feeling of stress can lead to life-threatening problems. From hypertension, heart diseases, decreased immunity, loss of sociability, and decreased mental vitality, stress is not to be taken lightly,” (“National Stress Awareness,” n.d.). Because of a lack of discussion around stress and anxiety, Tracey Pugh created the CalmCon2021 Conference, a virtual social & life skills conference, to create an open forum for parents and families to reveal, deal, and cope with stress to improve their child’s everyday mental health. 

CalmCon2021 will provide parents with a variety of resources, such as a discussion of youth anxieties, normalization of stress meditation, discussions on how to deal with stressful situations, Q&A sessions, and more, to start the conversation around dealing with youth’s mental health. Parents can also expect to hear from a variety of social and emotional learning professionals and content creators along with Tracey such as, licensed therapist, Miki Johnston, Pediatrician, Dr. Karen McClard, Kendall Stafford, Student Body President at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (BTWHSPVA), Will Richey Founder of Journeyman Ink and Alexander Perez Jr., Creative Content Specialist for Journeyman Ink, and more.

CalmCon2021 is scheduled to go live on Nov. 13 and all attendees must be registered to participate. 

Those who register TODAY, Nov. 3 (National Stress Awareness Day) will receive a complimentary CalmCon VIP Box sponsored by Phenixx Marketing to utilize tools provided during the conference in an at-home setting for at-home use.

Register TODAY for a FREE CalmCon2021 ticket at www.sociallywize.com
