Redefining your Relationship with Stress

Tuesday, 14 December 2021
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Nick Bloy, Wellbeing Republic

Stress is ubiquitous and, to make matters worse, most of us are reminded on a regular basis that it’s bad for our health. Yet, the research findings are mixed. While stress can undermine both our physical and mental health, it can also enhance it.

This webinar will explore why we may need to rethink the ‘stress is bad’ mantra that most of us have been brought up to believe. We will explore the biology, psychology and neuroscience that underpins our mental state and the impact that a chronic negative state of stress has on our ability to perform at our best. We’ll also look at how to redefine our relationship with stress to maximise performance and mental health, by identifying key skills to help see stress through a new lens.

Learning Objectives

By attending this webinar, delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the different sides of stress
  • Explore the biology, psychology and neuroscience of stress
  • Identify key skills to help redefine your relationship with stress
