The Idaho Falls Progressives will tackle the issue of financial stress at an event this weekend.

The group is hosting a health fair focused on managing financial stress, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Saturday at the Idaho Falls Public Library.

A news release said the fair will feature financial tips from experts as well as stress-reducing strategies for better health. The release said visitors will be invited to try yoga exercises and massage therapy. There also will be booths, demonstrations and an interactive game to teach kids how to manage money.

“The American Psychological Association lists money as one of the biggest causes of stress in our society,” event organizer Judy Schmidt said. “We want to let members of our community know they’re not alone and showcase some of the local resources that can help them take control of financial stress. This is important because chronic stress can contribute to serious health problems such as heart disease, depression, high blood pressure, and diabetes.”
