JCU Success Workshop (Toolkit for Stress Management (workshop 2))


When: 1 September 2022, 3pm -- 4pm
Location:Online Webinar

Overview

Stress effects everyone and comes in all forms and sizes. Day today hassles, worries and uncertainties create stress, which greatly impacts our personal and professional lives. Stress has serious implications for our physical and emotional well-being. Therefore, it is important for us to consciously take time out to recognize and manage our stress. While most people are able to identify their stressors, not all are able to successfully manage them. Unmanaged chronic stress can be corrosive and can potentially lead to burnout. Since stress and burnout are connected, we can lower the chances of being burnt out by managing the causes and symptoms of stress and taking preventive action. In fact, effective stress management can help us become resilient and empowered. To help the students manage their stress we have planned two workshops, which will focus on delivering the roadmap to a healthier, happier and fulfilling life.

In Workshop 2, participants will be familiarised with strategies for building greater focus in order to optimize their performance at work /school.
