Learn to identify ongoing symptoms of stress and how to find a more healthy approach to the demands of work and home. Reconciling the demands of work and home life can be a source of constant tension. As a result, sleep disturbances, appetite changes, headaches, poor concentration, and irritability are common signs of too much stress. In this timely seminar, you will learn to identify emotional and physical symptoms of stress, assess your own situation, and learn hands‐on techniques to bring balance to your work and personal life.
