Achieving a greater mastery of time can be a major contributor to reducing stress and this programme explores ways that people can take stock of their current life practices and explore techniques for gaining greater control over their time.
We all have the same amount of time available to us and to those who have the control over their time there is an opportunity, with a small amount of thought, control and planning to use it in the most efficient and effective manner. This programme gives an insight into the potential of better time management and looks at the concept that stress needs to be managed from within as well as being supported externally.
At the end of the programme participants will be able to:
- Know what stress is and how it is created
- Analyse themselves and their use of time.
