When you manage stress, you have better chances of being effective, successful and joyful.
COVID-19 is permeating into all aspects of our lives, disrupting life as we know with uncertainty looming over every human endeavour.
This unprecedented situation is adding to the already high stress levels. The situation is further aggravated by the unavailability of usual stress relievers like travel and social gatherings in the current crisis. To better cope with the situation, we explore some simple, but powerful, scientifically proven techniques for stress relief and resilience.
This is not a lecture or talk limited to the theory of stress management; the intention is to try out a few techniques, so that you can practice them to actually relieve stress and build resilience.
Outline of webinar:
– Science of stress and stress management
– Yogic techniques (validated by science) for stress relief
– Importance of resilience for effectiveness ‘in-the-moment’
– Practice for building resilience to stress and adverse events
