When Pressure turns to Stress
We all experience pressure; whether at work or home. Pressure provides the stimulation we need to take action, perform at our best and achieve our goals. This sort of pressure is healthy and rewarding. However, when pressure becomes excessive and we feel inadequate or unable to cope, that’s when we experience stress.
Stress has a detrimental effect on our performance and, in the longer term, a damaging effect on our health and well-being. In order to enjoy life and guarantee our well-being, we need to be able to cope with short term stress and avoid chronic stress.
Benefits of this 1 day workshop

- understand how we experience pressure, stress and anxiety
- apply this knowledge to recognise the sign of stress in self and others
