We're all doing more with less and it takes a toll on body, mind and spirit. How To Manage Stress can help you learn some skills for managing stress and gaining perspective on the stressors in your life. How To Manage Stress is self-paced: you review materials at your own pace. Since stress means different things to different people, four topics are available. They are described below.
Out Smart Stress
The way we think about a situation says a lot about how we feel about it. Our attitude is a powerful tool and one that can reduce our stress tremendously without costing us a dime or much additional time.
Relaxation Techniques & Exercise
Everyone knows they should relax but many of us don't know how. Find out how several relaxation techniques work including deep breathing, stretching, and mindfulness.
So much to do, so little time. Many of us consider this our daily mantra. Find out how you can make the most of the time you have as well as get started simplifying your life.
