If you find you're constantly adding items to your never-ending to-do list, feeling overwhelmed at work and at home, and your health and relationships are being negatively impacted, you are likely experiencing stress. Stress is produced by your own feelings and reactions to certain external events, rather than by the events themselves. This means that while you may not always be able to control the external events causing your stress, you can control your reactions to them. This course explains the physiological, behavioural, and psychological signs, symptoms and sources of stress. It outlines strategies for dealing with stress and avoiding burnout and how to use relaxation techniques such as breathing and meditation to cope.
