This training will explore the symptoms of stress, how to identify stressors within ourselves and others we work and live with, and how stress affects the body and mind. The training will closely examine how improving work-life balance can assist in better management of stress, which will ultimately reduce the limiting and negative effects stress can have on a person. 

The training will uncover symptoms of stress such as:
  • Psychological signs of stress

The training will explore and identify stress triggers, which is the first step toward being more mindful and present in stressful situations. Learning how to identify your stress triggers and being aware of their impact on your mental and physical health is a huge part of managing your well-being and mental fitness.

Stress, occurring over long periods of time can become chronic. Chronic stress can affect the mind and body. Chronic stress can put an individual at risk for certain health conditions such as:

  • Digestive problems and weight gain
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Headaches
  • Sleep problems
  • Concentration and focus concerns
  • High blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke

Work-life balance is one’s ability to manage his or her personal life along with work-related responsibilities. Another way to think about work-life balance is equal time or priority given to personal and professional activities. It is the balance between one’s home life and work life. When work-life balance is not balanced properly, stress can be imminent. The training will identify some challenges people may face with not having a work-life balance, and they include:

  • High expectations and demands from the employer
  • Time constraints from demanding work schedules
  • Prioritizing
  • Constant distractions
  • Challenges at home with raising a family and maintaining a home
The training will provide strategies and tips for better managing stress, as well as finding ways to reduce stress in the workplace. Managing stress and finding ways to reduce it are contributors to a person’s overall health and well-being.

How is stress best defined?


Stress is best defined as a consistent state of worry or mental distress caused by a difficult situation. It is a natural part of the human experience that we respond to threats perceived in our environment.

Being able to identify signs of stress can be important in effectively managing it. Here are some common signs: psychological signs of stress, emotional signs of stress, physical signs of stress, and behavioral signs of stress.


Work-life balance is the balance between one’s home life and work life. It is the ability to give equal time or priority to both personal and professional activities. When work-life balance is not balanced properly, stress can occur. What challenges may people be faced with when not having a work-life balance?


Some of the challenges people will face with not having a properly balanced work-life include: high expectations and demands from their employer, time constraints from a demanding schedule, constant distractions or interruptions, and challenges at home trying to maintain balance and order.


The body’s central nervous system is responsible for the “flight or fight” response. How is this response impacted by stress?


When you’re experiencing a perceived threat, the body produces stress hormones which can increase heart rate and increase the functioning of other organs. When the perceived threat is gone, the hypothalamus tells the body’s systems to return to their normal state.


Why is it important to identify your stress triggers?


This allows you to stay present and mindful, enabling you to manage and care for your well-being. Ultimately this impacts those around you who you interact with on a daily basis as well.
