Stress Management Course

CFT Credits: 0.25

We are more conscious of our health today than ever before.  But what about stress? Stress is a normal part of everyday life, and our picture of our overall health would not be complete without some consideration of how stress affects our emotional (and physical) health. This course will focus attention on stress management, specifically how to find a level of stress that is not only manageable, but useful for you, and how to avoid stress beyond that level. You will also learn the basics of good emotional health, how to improve your self-image and become more self-aware, and how your emotional health ties in to your physical health.
