Course description

Stress is a normal part of life. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy to deal with! When too much stress builds up over time, it can affect our work, our personal lives, and even our health. Learning to deal with stress in a healthy way can improve our well-being, at work and at home.

Here’s what will be covered in this course:

  • - We will explore what stress is and what it feels like.
  • - We’ll talk about good ways to reduce and recover from stress.
  • - You’ll have a chance to figure out some sources of stress in your life, and make a plan to deal with at least one of them.

The Stress Management course is part of the UP Skills for Work program which helps you build employability skills. When you have these skills, you have the foundation needed to work well with others—at work, at home, and in your community. That’s part of why employers are looking for people with strong employability skills! The UP Skills for Work program includes nine courses including: Motivation, Attitude, Accountability, Presentation, Teamwork, Time Management, Adaptability, Stress Management, and Confidence.

This course is made possible through the generous support of Canada Life, the founding sponsor of UP Skills for Work. To learn more about the program, please visit the UP Skills for Work website.
