When we think of stress, we often view it in a negative light. While too much stress can be problematic and sometimes detrimental, a little stress is normal and can be useful in providing motivation and focus.
In this workshop, we will explore what stress is, how it manifests in our body and brain, and ways that we can practice self-care to prevent and cope with stress.
If you’re living with high levels of stress, you’re putting your entire well-being at risk. Stress wreaks havoc on your emotional equilibrium, as well as your physical health. It narrows your ability to think clearly, function effectively, and enjoy life. It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress. The bills won’t stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day, and your work and family responsibilities will always be demanding. But you have a lot more control than you might think.
Effective stress management helps you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun—and the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on. But stress management is not one-size-fits-all. That’s why it’s important to experiment and find out what works best for you. This online stress management guide can help you do that.
