Distress or de-stress?

Stress is not always caused by an event or situation. Sometimes stress can be caused by our own thoughts, feelings and behaviours. Often, how we feel and think about a situation can change how we react. While we may not be able to control the situation that triggers our stress we can learn new practises so it affects us less.

Read over the factsheets from our workshop material to find out more.
