Overcome Stress – Build Resilience
Our programme runs over 5 days.
We know that the thought of taking a full day out of an already busy schedule for a full-day workshop can add to your stress, so we have broken down our programme into smaller bite-size chunks. Overcoming stress and building resilience is not a one-time activity or something you can learn in a single workshop. We give you time in between workshops to go away and put your learning into practice then report back the next day with your successes, challenges or questions. What we’ll cover Teaching Points Participant Exercises: Getting Started - Workshop 1 Day 1 Brief – Getting Started During this 1 hour 20-minute session, we will focus on how the programme works & amp; what you will need to do to get the best out of it. We will talk about what stress is and how it impacts on our health & performance. We will help you uncover your specific stress triggers, how these impacts you and how you can manage them. Finishing off with a mindfulness meditation to bring awareness to your breath and body
