Stress Control text –

Stress is part of modern life. Four out of ten people in Britain say that it is a big problem for them. It is one of the most common reasons for people seeing their GP.

Even though it is so common, people are often not aware of it, and may find it hard to accept. Instead they may ask their GP for tablets to help an upset stomach, headaches, chest pains, poor sleep etc, which may be to do with stress.

People under stress often feel they are losing control over their lives and that they can't cope with things everyone else seems to cope with.

Stress can affect anyone and everyone - young or old, male or female, rich or poor, outgoing or shy. You are not strange, inadequate, mad or stupid because you have stress...stress is normal.

People under stress are often told "Pull yourself together" - if it was that simple, you would have done it already. No one wants to have too much stress. The causes of stress and what keeps it going are complex - but, you can learn to control your stress better.

As the course goes on, you will learn how to out these together. At the end of the course, you will have a tool kit that you will be able to put into practice.
