Book loaded with practical ideas and strategies on how to handle and reduce everyday stress of modern living.
The ability to recognize and manage stressful situations and reduce long-term stress is one of the key factors in maintaining health, as well as productivity, work motivation and performance.
The book Stress Management will help you become more aware of your responses to stressful situations and its consequences, and lead you through short-term and long-term stress management techniques.
In todays, modern life, we often encounter situations that cause us stress. Despite the fact that stress is actually something normal and sometimes necessary, the profession is warning us that long-term exposure to stress is very harmful to health. According to the World Health Organisation, long-term stress is one of the major health threats of the 21st century.
the ability to recognise and manage stressful situations and reduce long-term stress is therefore one of the key factors in maintaining health, as well as productivity, work motivation and performance at work.
Stress is also often unrecognised, silent companion of our lives, as we unknowingly get used to it and are often not even aware of it. That is why it is very important that we know how to recognise stress at all. In the book Stress Management, you will therefore also find explanations for the sources of stress, how to recognise stress and what are the warning signs and symptoms when there is too much stress and it harms us.
The book will help you become aware of your responses to stress and its consequences, and learn and try out short-term and long-term stress management techniques.
