Stress is about how you react to situations and demands, when you can learn to respond instead to those same situations, then you can change your life. Responding rather than reacting is a learned behavior for most people as, for most of us, we spend the majority of our lives on auto-pilot, unaware of what is causing our stress and how we respond to it.
Stepping back and becoming more present in your life is the first step toward understanding how stress is affecting you on a personal level mentally, emotionally and physically; and from there, how stress affects the way you deal with those around you professionally and personally.
Emotional triggers are challenging to recognize and release as we often do not realize that we are being triggered. We don't understand what is causing the trigger or the emotions that arise as result of the trigger. Triggers are often responses to something that happened years ago; and your responses are the same each time you are triggered as you don't have the tools or techniques to change how you respond.
Within this workshop you will be provided with the tools to start the process of becoming an observer in your life. As an observer, you will be more aware of yourself, your physical self and your behaviours. This will allow you to transition towards being able to recognize the physical symptoms that warn of an escalation of emotions, allowing you to utilize the exercises and techniques presented which will guide you towards responding to situations with a clear, calm awareness of exactly what is taking place in front of you.
You can't change most of the world around you, but you can change how you view it. Within this workshop, you will be shown tools and techniques to help you change your world to reduce stress.
Why you should attend:
- We are all under stress, at work, at home, on your drive to work. It affects you on a mental, emotional and physical level, sometimes to the point where you feel overwhelmed by it.
Stress is actually a normal response to any situation or demand that you consider to be threatening or dangerous. On a physical level, stress causes a release of a variety of hormones within your body that changes the way you breathe, how much you sweat, they tighten your muscles preparing you for the flight or fight response.
In this day and age however, we do not leave the scene and, for the most part, we do not fight resulting in hormones being stored rather than used up. When we are continuously under stress, eventually, our body becomes overwhelmed and are negatively affected by the constant flow of hormones.
Your health, the way you react to situations, the way you respond to staff, family, demands on your time, anxiety and depression are all affected by your perception of stress. Learn to respond to stressful situations or demands rather than reacting and you can change your life.
