Stress
Stress is unavoidable. A common belief is that stress is bad for us. This does not have to be the case. Some stress can even be beneficial and a challenge to a better performance. It’s the ongoing  strain and pressure that can be harmful for our health and wellbeing. In other words: when one's resources meet the demands, stress acts as a stimulating factor that contributes to success. However, when demands exceed resources, one experiences the type of stress associated with health problems and deteriorating relationships.

Benefits of My Stress Coach
Participants can start the training program wherever and whenever they like: at home, at work or on the go. My Stress Coach helps to recognize symptoms and signals of stress. It teaches strategies and techniques to reduce and prevent stress. Appreciation for the good things in life, a healthy life style, relaxation and personal development increase the ability to cope with stress. As a result the training helps to restore a balance in life.
