Stress can occur for a number of reasons and may affect us all differently. Stress management is important, as the Health and Safety Executive states “work related stress develops because a person is unable to cope with the demands being placed on them.”
It accounts for a large number of lost working days each year, infact an estimated 39% of all work related illness.
High stress levels can impact not only on your professional life, it can impact your family life. Often there are financial implications and it can causes physical ailments.
Stress management training is about understanding what causes stress, having a plan to recognise when you are struggling to cope. Furthermore its important to have a plan to minimise that stress.
