Stress is a universal and naturally occurring phenomenon in humans. While stress cannot be eliminated, participants can learn to deal with it effectively to maximize their potential. Why do some people handle stress better than others? The answer may be as simple as: They recognize what their stressors are and they have a plan for dealing with them. This course will investigate the common causes of stress, outline practical ways to deal with stress, and offer suggestions for changing habits that exacerbate stress. Participants will develop a personal stress management plan during the class to help them control or make the most of the stressors in their life.
