 Program Topic: I am Sooooo Stressed Out…

Take Back Control of Your Stress Today

What does dessert and Elvis Presley have to do with stress management? Everything!

Everyone faces stress.  It’s a fact of life.  What you do with it makes the difference between enjoying your life or resenting it… between being challenged or being overwhelmed.  The demands and the pace of our busy lives pressure us all.  Some master it and some do not.  The trick is to take back control!

In this dynamic, unconventional, and entertaining session, we will address the subject of Stress from a refreshingly common sense point of view.  Helping you learn how to function with stress, as well as how to reduce it.  You’ll learn how to feel better about yourself and become less venerable to stressful situations.  At the same time you will learn to lighten up and see the humor that is all around us!

Some of what the participants will learn:

  • How to identify the “good” stress and “bad” stress
  • Understanding our optimal stress
  • The answer to two key questions to manage any stressful situation
  • Have a guaranteed, sure fire way to turn your love of dessert and the King of Rock and Roll into practical, real world way to control your stress!

 Tutorial: “Self-Guided Tour CR Smith Aviation Museum”

 The C.R. Smith Museum is named for the innovative aviation pioneer and former President of American Airlines, Cyrus Rowlett Smith. The museum opened July 3rd, 1993.

Artifacts were acquisitioned, catalogued and incorporated into the museum’s displays and archives by staff and volunteers.  The “star” and centerpiece of the C.R. Smith Museum is its lovingly restored 1940 Douglas DC-3, Flagship Knoxville. Visitors can get a real sense of what air travel was like in the 1940s when C.R. Smith and the DC-3 revolutionized commercial air travel.

November 9, 2007, marked the official unveiling of the museum’s updated History Circle as well as a number of new exhibits. New graphics, artifacts and state-of-the-art video monitors bring visitors information on the ever changing world of American Airlines, American Eagle, the commercial aviation industry, the challenges, the changes, and the future. Children will find many new exhibits that will catch their attention and keep them engaged.

Within the History Circle lies a new theater, sponsored by American Express Travel, featuring the original HD film, An American Journey. It is a chance for the visitor to hear the stories of American Airlines/American Eagle personnel, their contributions, and what the airline industry means to them. It is a heart-warming addition to the museum.
