This course is designed to help you get a better understanding of what stress is, what causes stress and what keeps it going. Over the course of four sessions you can learn to manage your own stress better to enhance your wellbeing and overall health.
- Session one takes a closer look at what stress is, who gets it and what can help to break the stress cycle. This session also looks at the relationship between stress, depression and anxiety. After identifying your personal stress patterns, you can set achievable goals you may wish to work towards and learn helpful coping strategies.
- Session two explores the effect stress has on our body and vice versa. You can learn more about what happens in the body when we feel low or anxious. This session explains different relaxation techniques and skills that can help you calm body and mind.
- Session three is all about our thoughts and how stress affects the way we think. This session explores the power of thoughts, worry, and that thoughts aren’t facts! After looking closely at different commonly used unhelpful thinking styles, this session offers you alternative and more balanced ways of thinking.
- Session four is all about our behaviour, the things we do or don’t do. You can learn how to overcome procrastination, how to manage common human emotions such as anger, get active, solve problems and how to establish a good work life balance.
The course is designed as a whole package and to get the most out of it, it is recommended to attend all four sessions. Each session is part of a jigsaw and they build upon each other. You can sign up to a live version on the Study Hub or access pre-recorded videos on our Wellbeing Website.
