“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.”

Hans Selye – Canadian Scientist

ABOUT THIS COURSE

Stress is increasingly prevalent in modern society, with people feeling under pressure both at home and in their private lives. Stress can adversely affect our health, performance, careers, relationships and general wellbeing

People who attend this course often ask us:

  • How can I feel less stressed at work?
  • Sometimes I don’t feel in control of things, what can help?
  • How can I manage my stress more effectively?
  • How can I work more effectively under pressure?
  • How can I improve my work-life balance?

We can all do things to control and manage our stress, helping us be happier, more productive and more balanced - and, of course, not all ‘stress’ is a bad thing – a degree of positive pressure helps drive us to improve our performance and achieve our goals.

This short course explores what stress is, as well as the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ stress, identifying its signs and symptoms, impact and practical tools to help beat it.
