About this workshop

According to the The American Institute of Stress, approximately 33 percent of people report feeling extreme stress, 77 percent of people experience stress that affects their physical health, 73 percent of people have stress that impacts their mental health and 48 percent of people have trouble sleeping because of stress”. These statistics highlight the importance of knowing how to recognise the signs of stress and burnout whilst also knowing what to do in order to manage unhealthy stress levels.

Dr Shamarel, has designed a 2 part workshop that guides participants through how to manage stress effectively. Through the use of interactive activities, you will be shown how to effectively monitor and manage your stress levels.
