We all know what it’s like to feel stressed. Being under pressure is a normal part of life. But becoming overwhelmed on a regular basis by it should not be.
This interactive workshop will look at the impact of Stress, what it is and how we acknowledge it. We will look at some very effective habit changes that can really help alleviate its negative impact on our health and wellbeing and also learn some mindful practices to help us feel more in control and better able to manage it.
Emotional health is about how people think and feel, how they engage with their emotions, their ability to cope with life events and how they communicate with others. In this session people learn the important role emotions play at work, how to recognise them, how to react more mindfully and how to express them in the most constructive way.
Sleep, Relaxation & Energy
We all know that sleep and rest play a vital role in good health, cognitively, emotionally and in people’s ability to perform generally. But unfortunately sleep ‘problems’ are fast becoming an epidemic. In this session we look at how daytime routines affect people’s sleep patterns and how we conserve and boost our energy levels. We will offer tips and tools to enhance the quality and duration of sleep.
Mood & Food
People feeling below par, exhausted, anxious or unrefreshed no longer need to take a passive approach. There is much compelling evidence about the links between food and our nerves, brain and digestion and thus our mood. In this session, we explore some useful biology about the essential relationship between good digestion and our natural energy levels and emotions. We also look at particular food groups and offer some great tools to help people take back the control of how they feel.

This session intends to broaden people’s view of what mental health is, what it means to have a mental health condition and how we can talk more freely about it so everyone feels included, supported and able to live & work well. We will also look at the factors that promote recovery and wellbeing.
From the outside looking in, it can be difficult to spot the difference between stress and anxiety. Both can lead to similar symptoms but there are differences.

In this short briefing session, we will talk about what anxiety and panic is, learn tips for managing anxiety and discover how we can support someone experiencing a panic attack.
