OVERVIEW

Stress Better is designed to help participants better understand stress, anxiety and worry, and the connection between the three. It equips you with tools to manage their stress more effectively. The session is punctuated with the presentation of a real life story as told by a MIEACT Volunteer Educator who has been living with mental illness.

  • Understand stress tolerance and the ways we hurt or help our stress levels;
  • Identify areas of influence and control for individual stressors;
  • Learn a simple formula to help manage your stress;
  • Learn strategies around unpacking their worries in order to reduce stress.
