Many of us experience stress in life, whether this is in the short term from one-off projects, or long-term stress from a high-pressure career.
Not only can this be profoundly unpleasant, it can seriously affect our health and our work. However, it is possible to manage stress, if you use the right tools and techniques.
About the course
The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. So there’s no escaping stress or magic pill to get rid of it. To beat the negative side of stress you have two choices:
Reduce the strain or boost your ability to weather its effects.
Cutting pressure is ideal, but frankly, unlikely…
So it makes more sense to focus on improving your mental and physical ability to process stress.
