Why stress management training?
While a small amount of stress can be beneficial for productivity in the workplace, when we feel excessively stressed it can harm our health and wellbeing and lead to reduced effectiveness at work.
If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn’t ask me, I’d still have to say it.
Stress is one of the leading causes of disease and illness in the modern world, contributing to between 75% and 90% of illness.* Some of the key illnesses stress is linked to are depression, anxiety, and cardiovascular disease. These not only impact our health, but also our ability to work effectively. Other less severe, but nevertheless important effects of stress include irritability, inhibited thinking, and reduced creativity.
The key for executives and staff therefore, is to learn to minimise stress by regularly using techniques to reduce stressors and learn to manage their own emotional state better.
Happy Ground Wellbeing provides tailored workplace programs to help executives and staff better understand the causes and impacts of stress, and discover a range of solutions to manage stress effectively.
Stress management training will help executives and staff to:
- Recognise the causes of stress
- Discover the consequences of stress for our wellbeing and work effectiveness
- Learn ways to better manage stress (including meditation and psychology)
- Learn how to develop effective stress management routines
Stress management training can be tailored to your workplace and time constraints. However, the most effective programs consist of one or more workshops, and ‘homework’ exercises to help develop improved thinking and new habits.
