Course Description

In a crazy busy world, it’s easy to get caught up in the idea that stress belongs here, no matter its impact on us. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Learn to transform old views of stress as doom and gloom and see how the protective effects of good stress helps you meet the challenges you face.

This training is perfect for people who feel weighed down, overworked, and burnout by the demands of work (and life).
