MEREDITH — Author, speaker and personal well-being coach Lyn Durham will give a talk about how to live a balanced life when she speaks on Thursday, Oct. 16, at the Meredith Public Library. The one-hour presentation, titled "From Frazzled to Fantastic," is due to begin at 6:30 p.m.
Durham, a registered nurse, will offer insights and skills beneficial to one's well-being. She will explain the scientific rationale for staying in touch with personal needs, the thought patterns that influence stress and practice the mind/body/spirit techniques that work, including the relaxation response and the sense of humor.
Durham is the author of the book "From Frazzled to Fantastic! You're One Thought Away From Feeling Better," the audio book, "Dancing Gracefully With Life," and the booklet "Welcome Wellness." She blends the knowledge of a professor of nursing education with the wisdom gained at the Harvard Deaconess Mind Body Medical Institute and mixes it with life experiences, optimism and good humor.
