Managing Pressure and Stress to Optimize Your Performance
People react to high pressure differently. Learning to cope with pressure and handling stress are very important, because you don’t want pressure to have a negative impact on your performance. In this course, you'll learn about managing stress and pressure, situations that trigger pressure, and how pressure can become stress. You'll also look at how stress affects you emotionally and physically, and how to respond to it. And you'll also learn strategies for managing stress by ensuring you have the right attitude, taking control under pressure, and using performance management to cultivate a "success mentality." You can then optimize your own performance, and prepare to cope with stressed colleagues.

Take a Deep Breath and Manage Your Stress
When you're constantly adding items to your never-ending to-do list, feeling overwhelmed at work and at home, and finding your health and relationships negatively impacted, you are likely experiencing stress. Stress is produced by your own feelings and reactions to certain external events, rather than by the events themselves. But while you may not always be able to control the external events causing your stress, by applying mindfulness techniques, you can control your reactions to them. This course explains the physiological, behavioral, and psychological signs and symptoms of stress and where it can come from. It outlines strategies for maintaining work/life balance and managing stress. It also covers ways to change your responses to stress and make them more positive and how to use relaxation techniques and adopting mindfulness to help you focus.
