Mindfulness to Decrease Workplace Stress

Tuesday, February 13 & Thursday, February 15: 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Stress is the brain and body’s response to change, challenge, or demand. It is the body’s natural defense against danger brought on by an event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous.  Employees at all levels feel stress. Many people feel that the demands of the workplace combined with the demands of home are overwhelming. Mindfulness is the present-moment awareness that involves monitoring and attending to current experience rather than predicting future events or dwelling on the past. This course explores the causes of stress and focuses on mindfulness as a strategy to address stress.

Participants will:

  • Understand the potential causes and symptoms of stress
  • Learn techniques for changing situations and actions that can be changed
  • Explore mindfulness and its impact of stress reduction
  • Learn fundamental techniques of mindfulness
  • Create an action plan to help reduce and manage stress
