Course Overview

One of the biggest obstacles to maintaining high standards at work and home is the stress factor that we each encounter every day of our lives. Physiologically, based on the number of cell divisions in each organ, the human body should be capable of living to between 100 and 150 years. Anything less should be considered an ‘early death’. However stress-induced illnesses have now replaced infectious diseases as the most prevalent health afflictions affecting industrialised nations. One of the biggest reasons cited for an increase in stress-related illnesses are the increased demands on our time, particularly in the workplace. For many of us there is never enough time to cope with all the demands placed upon us. This one day course looks at both time and stress management and suggests strategies for helping to manage both.
