Work-related stress is occupational disease number one. Everyone has stress. Is that bad? Not if it’s healthy stress. Stress makes us alert. It helps us to focus. Stress becomes unhealthy if we ‘stay on too long’. This can cause all kinds of complaints. Unhealthy stress is caused by the fact that your load is greater than your carrying capacity. You get out of balance. And that has unpleasant consequences.
Physical fatigue, headaches, concentration problems, restless nights, a hectic feeling; they influence your performance at work and your activities at home. You lose grip, too much to do, too little time. A feeling of powerlessness arises. Until the moment you actually drop out.
How do you prevent burn-out? How do you deal with unhealthy stress and prevent imbalance? In this webinar we will work with stress sources and stress reduction techniques, accept and let go and a better focus. In the Masterclass Stress and Burnout you will learn how you can continue to work comfortably and productively without sacrificing your health.
