Handling stress

Introduction

Stress has its virtues. It allows us to react quickly when necessary. Without stress, we would be unable to adapt to changes in our environment.

Stress in itself is not dangerous. Instead, it is the abuse of stress and the failure to recharge our batteries that places us at risk.

In this module, we will therefore look at ways to make stress our ally and how to recharge our batteries.
