Strategies for stress, with Ella Reynolds
In this practical and positive session, we'll explore the realities of stress, reframe its relationship with performance and together try out some helpful and transformative tools.
In these ever changing times, we're collectively conscious of the concept of stress and the consequences it has on our mental and physical health — at home, work and everywhere in-between.
And while we tend to think of stress as being always bad, we actually need a certain amount of pressure to not only keep us safe, but also motivated and engaged in the work we’re doing. As a byproduct of caring about someone or something deeply, stress can also go hand in hand with the things that give our lives meaning.
In this 90 minute session led by yoga and wellbeing practitioner Ella Reynolds, we’ll re-evaluate our relationship with stress, building our understanding and self-awareness about how stress impacts us; before experimenting with some tools and strategies to support self-regulation at times of overwhelm in the future.
What we'll cover:
• The biology of stress, and what’s going on in our bodies
• The connection between stress and meaning
• Tools for identifying our own stress signature
• Self-steadying practices for when regulation is required
How the session will be structured:
Ella will share practical ideas and approaches for managing stress, while encouraging individual reflection and group discussion.
Who the session's for:
Anyone looking for new tools and perspectives to add to their stress management toolkit, and keen to discuss approaches with a supportive group of peers.
