There are numerous causes of stress in our lives; many of which unfortunately cannot be avoided. The goal is to learn to reduce the amount of stress in your life while at the same time increasing your ability to manage it when those unavoidable situations occur.
This stress management webinar provides you with an insight into the techniques to manage your stress including how to implement specific relaxation techniques, identifying and avoiding stressful situations, coping with setbacks, accepting and coping with stress in certain situations and altering circumstances to minimise the effect stress has on you. Effective stress management will lead to better health and greater productivity.
If you've ever struggled with anger, you are probably familiar with the feeling of regret that follows an outburst. You promise yourself: "I'll never let that happen again." But then, it happens again. And again. Anger takes away our ability to think rationally. After your anger fades, you regain the ability to think clearly, and you regret what your angry self said or did.
But here's the thing - anger isn't always a bad thing. When controlled, anger helps us. Anger drives us to make changes to situations that are bad, it pushes us to stand up for our rights, and it protects us if our lives are threatened. The problem isn't having anger, it's having too much anger, and expressing it in an ineffective way.
Anger management teaches us to deal with our anger in a healthy way.
