Learn How to Manage Stress

We live in a fast-paced where we need to constantly reinvent ourselves to excel in the workplace. When it comes to personal relationships, we need to prioritise the right things and devote time


Life has become more complicated than most people can handle. This is why stress is sometimes referred to as the modern epidemic—a widespread condition that creates additional tension to individuals within the workplace and in their personal life. Whether life events are problems or challenges, we experience stress in a number of ways.


Before you make a plan to “de-stress,” you need to understand the fundamentals behind this psychological phenomenon. The Australian Psychological Society defines stress as a feeling of being overloaded, wound-up tight, tense and worried. It can be active or passive in nature.


Stress occurs when the pressure placed upon an individual exceeds their capacity to cope. This impairs one’s ability to be logical, think straight, be happy, and be confident. This can eventually turn into depression as well. Needless to say, stress is an unhealthy state of body or mind or both—and weekend getaways, talking to friends, watching TV shows, or doing certain activities are temporary relief at best.


Managing stress is about taking charge of your thoughts, emotions, schedule, and the way you deal with problems. If you master this technique, your stress will push you to do better instead of holding you back. This is what this course is all about—to help you tame your demons and make them work for you instead of against you.
