Work Life Wellbeing: Stress Awareness
Week Two: Stress management
Wednesday, April 12, 2023 · 10:30 AM - 12 PM
Stress is a natural response that your body displays when you face an imminent threat. This is the so-called fight or flight response. When you are stressed, you experience a number of symptoms, including a faster heartbeat, higher blood pressure, a feeling of having a knot in your stomach, and more. These changes exist so that you are better prepared to either run away quickly from a threat or to fight against it. Our modern lifestyle is particularly conducive to the development of chronic stress because we tend to struggle in dealing with competing demands for our time and attention.
April is Stress Awareness Month. Each week, we will explore aspects of stress and how it shows up in our lives:
April 5-What is Stress, its impacts, and causes.
April 12-Stress Management
April 19-Stress at Work
April 26-Building a Stress Management Plan
Benefits of stress awareness and management:
