Workplace wellness and stress management

Although work is an activity that is fundamentally important to maintaining mental health, it can also be a source of stress that is difficult to manage. Stress in and of itself is neither negative nor positive. It is the emotions that accompany it that set the tone. In other words, if you have a positive reaction to a situation you need to adapt to, the stress involved will be constructive. This seminar will teach you handy strategies for making stress your ally instead of your adversary for a healthier, more productive workplace.
