Taking Stock of Your Work/Life Balance
People with a healthy work-life balance are satisfied with both their work and home lives. They can fulfill their multiple family responsibilities at home, as well as work and community commitments without guilt or regret. They're healthy physically, emotionally, and socially. They're not over-worked. In fact, they have a sense of control over their life, and feel that the decisions they make are informed choices. In this course, you'll learn about how to detect imbalance between home and work and how to achieve a healthy compromise between work balance and life balance. And you'll assess your current work/life balance so you can overcome internal and external obstacles to achieving harmony.

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.

In this course, you'll learn how to prepare for trips, plan personal and household tasks, and become more organized as a parent.
