Module of the Month – November 2018

Updated: Sep 19, 2019

As November 7 marks National Stress Awareness Day, we’ve chosen Dealing with Stress as our Module of the Month in recognition of the serious toll it take on our emotional, mental and physical wellbeing, with people increasingly feeling overwhelmed in both their personal and professional lives.

National Stress Awareness Day, created by the International Stress Management Association (ISMA), is an excellent opportunity for us to take a step back and think about our own mental wellbeing, with a recent survey revealing that 94% of people believe that their stress is work-related.

Recognising this, Mind, the mental health charity, introduced the idea of creating a Stress Awareness Space in the workplace as an area where colleagues can share their feelings, seek advice and support each other.

Our Dealing with Stress module explores the sources of stress including key behavioural and health indicators as well as offering advice on how to effectively manage stress levels in the workplace.

So, for a range of hints and tips, why not check out our Dealing with Stress course for free by clicking here?

Or, if you’d like more information on Mind’s Stress Awareness Space check out their website to access a range of resources designed to help establish areas where your employees feel able to talk, share and de-stress.

Dealing with Stress forms part of Sturdy’s Personal Development range alongside Negotiation Skills, Decision-Making and Time Management. For more information on these, or any course in our extensive content catalogue email
