Choosing Balance Under Stress
The effects of stress have a dramatic effect on productivity. This course focuses on three areas—body, mind, and spirit—to empower participants in gaining the inner resources necessary to handle stress effectively. The course is presented as an overview with experiential processes that can be practiced and integrated over time. Participants are put in the driver’s seat by going to the root of their stress. They uncover their unproductive thoughts and beliefs about stressful circumstances and re-frame them into a more pro-active focus with a solutions oriented approach. Deep breathing, visualization, meditation and deep relaxation are experienced as tools for calming and centering. Re-claiming their core values and what they ‘love to do’ in life brings renewal and strength. The program is offered as a half or full day course.
