Stress is a fact of 21st century life – but what is stress? And how can we manage the sources of stress in our own lives more effectively?
This lively and interactive workshop provides insight into what stress is all about, insights participants then apply to the stressful situations in their own lives. The session includes opportunities to practice calming our minds, relaxing our bodies, and wisely responding to pressures and demands, whatever their source or intensity.
At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:
1. Understand what’s really happening when they feel “stressed out”;
2. Use this understanding to come up with effective strategies for managing the stressors in their lives;
3. Practice simple but effective stress management techniques, including progressive muscle relaxation and challenging self-sabotaging thoughts.
