Stress Management

Managing stress in the workplace is a very important component of productivity. This stress management seminar focuses on teaching stress management techniques which will help people to handle situations in a more constructive rather destructive manner.

The goal of stress management is to bring your nervous system back into balance, giving you a sense of calmness and control in your life. Controlling your life means balancing various aspects of it — work, relationships and leisure — as well as the physical, intellectual and emotional parts. People who effectively manage stress consider life a challenge rather than a series of irritations, and they feel they have control over their lives, even in the face of setbacks.

Richard S. Lazarus defined stress as a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that “demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize.” Stress is a normal physical reaction that occurs when you feel threatened or overwhelmed.
