Stress Management Training Course: Introduction

Stress is constant companion in everybody’s life. The thing we don’t understand is that stress can be good for us at times, not only bad. This course will teach participants how to use the good stress or eustress to our advantage and how to minimise the bad stress. We will teach participants the Three A method of dealing with stress as well as coping methods and relaxation techniques.

Stress Management Training Course :Course Outline

1.       Why is stress so stressful? The dictionary definition defines stress as physical, mental or emotional strain or tension. It’s basically a bell going off in your brain and we can thank our early ancestors for this alert system, although when they were stressing they were running away from a large animal wanting to kill them. You can see how that could be stressful. Our brains have had to adapt and now a situation may not be life threatening but we perceive it to be an uncomfortable situation and because we want to get away from the large animal chasing us, we stress. 2. Is all stress bad? No. The word stress comes from a Latin word meaning ‘distress’, distress is bad stress and we should try to reduce it if it interferes with our ability to work, parent or socialise. Eustress is a modern term meaning ‘good stress’, we don’t always recognise good stress, and it helps us to perform at our peak in whatever we are doing. If we were running away from a large animal wanting to kill us and we cross a powerful river which the animal cannot cross, then we would stand on the opposite bank jumping for joy. Distress caused us to take a risk and cross the river, eustress is the joy we perceive in succeeding. 3. How do I reduce bad stress in my life? The basics remain constant in whatever you want to change in your life, before you can address the specific change you must take care of yourself physically first. Eat properly for enough fuel to outrun the animal, exercise regularly or it’s going to be a short chase for the animal, get eight hours of quality shut eye. Now we can address the specific change we want. 4. What can I do to make a stressful situation easier on myself? There are a wide variety of methods and theories and guides, all discussed in books about stress. At the most basic level there is the triple A approach. The theory is that you have three choices: Alter the situation, avoid the situation or accept the situation. This is subjective because we are unique and there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach. 5. How do I relax in a stressful situation? Firstly, breathe. Slowly and calmly, avoid hyperventilating. Count slowly to ten and as you count tell yourself how you feel more and more relaxed with each count. If you can leave the situation for five minutes, such as a ‘bathroom-break’ – find somewhere where it is quiet and you are alone and then practice guided imagery. You visualise yourself in a calm, beautiful place such as a beach or a forest, then you relax your body bit by bit as you move further into the image. The best thing you can do for bad, unavoidable stress is to form a routine of meditating every night and consciously relaxing.TIP: When you are going to be in a stressful situation you can’t avoid: ·Consciously choose to be in that situation, many people go through a stressful situation and feel powerless because they cannot alter or avoid it, this is false. The power of choice reduces the level of stress; add to this – a positive attitude and positive thinking. ·Establish a support system, if you can take someone with you who does not stress in the same situation, feed off their power and positivity. ·Create a plan – it will give you a sense of control over the situation. ·Know when and where to seek help. It is never a bad idea to ask for professional help with stress. Self-confident and assertiveness are two skills that are crucial for success in life. If you don’t feel worthy, and/or you don’t know how to express your self-worth when communicating with others, life can be very painful. These skills will provide opportunities and benefits to your participants in their professional and personal lives. The Assertiveness And Self-Confidence workshop will give participants an understanding of what assertiveness and self-confidence each mean (in general and to them personally) and how to develop those feelings in their day-to-day lives. These skills will encompass many aspects of your participant’s lives and have a positive effect on all of them.
