Status: Archived

Are you constantly adding items to your to-do list? Does it seem like your list never shrinks? Are you feeling overwhelmed at work and at home? Are you afraid that stress is starting to negatively impact your health and relationships? Stress is produced by your own feelings and reactions to certain external events, rather than by the events themselves. And while you may not always be able to control the external events that are causing you stress, you can control your reactions to them and how you handle them. This course will explain how the signs and symptoms of stress can be physiological, behavioural, or psychological in nature and where these stresses can come from. This course reviews strategies for coping with stress and avoiding burnout. It also covers how you can positively change your responses to stress once you are able to recognize how you respond to stressful situations. Relaxation techniques such as breathing and meditation are also covered.
