Course 1 – Manage Workplace Stress
Don’t Stress Over Stress

Most of us are so used to being stressed out that we think that we're okay, as long as we are not lying in a heap on the floor from total exhaustion. Even if you don't think that a situation is stressful, it could still be interpreted by your body as a stress inducing situation. Learn to recognize stress & its effects.

Recognize the Signs

Let's take a look at some of the signs & signals that indicate you may be under stress. Stress can affect all aspects of your life, including your emotions, behaviors, thinking ability & physical health. No part of the body is immune. Recognizing typical stress symptoms can help assess your stress levels.

Meet Your Nervous System
Deconstruct Stress

Understand the two branches of your autonomic nervous system & how they contribute to your fight or flight stress responses.

Reflect on Your Stressors
One of the best ways to begin combatting stress is to understand which stressors you respond to & which activities help level your stressed out states. Take a look at this list of stressors & identify those that you know you react to.
Identify Your Style
How do you respond in a stressful situation? Do you respond aggressively from your fight response or do you tend to take passive flight? Assess your natural response style under stress.
Break the Stress Cycle
Reduce the Effects

When you are better able to regulate how you respond to day to day stress, it gives your body a break from elevated cortisol levels. Learn more about cortisol & how to keep it at bay.
