Scope
Workshop summary
Our overall resilience and wellbeing is impacted by our ability to manage our stress levels in our increasingly busy lives. A certain level of stress is necessary to motivate us. Some people cope whilst others find it all too much. Why is this? To some extent it is not the stress that is important, but what we do with it.

This workshop provides a starting point that will help you to identify the main physical, psychological and behavioural symptoms of stress. It will enable you to develop better coping strategies and practice some simple methods that will make you feel calmer and more in control. Looking at a variety of coping methods, it will help to start the process of changing how you react to and cope with stress. It will help you to plan towards what you need for a better balance, to be more resilient, happier, healthier and more productive.
