Should we aim to eradicate stress or just deal with it differently? A certain amount of stress can motivate us, but too much stress can leave us feeling irritable, exhausted and physically unwell.
Stress has become a status symbol of our modern world; we compete to be the busiest person in the room and the one to have the most demands on our time. We have associated this state of living with success, but does this really mean we’re working effectively?
We look at the science behind stress and the effect it has on our brains and our bodies. We look to identify common triggers and high pressure zones and we offer practical tools on how to combat everything from short-term pressure to chronic stress.
Drawing on disciplines from cognitive therapies to behavioural science, we teach you a new set of tools to enable you to manage stress more effectively.
In this workshop we cover:
The effect of stress on our brains and our bodies
Identifying the signs and symptoms of stress
What causes stress? Identifying triggers and high pressure zones
Identifying your key stressors and effective coping strategies
Some practical stress management techniques
Dealing with chronic stress
Workshop duration: 1 hour / 90 minutes
