Relieve your stress, understand your emotions, calm your thoughts and build your mental immunity – for everyone productivity is directly related to mental, physical and emotional condition.

Is it possible to stop, reduce or even eliminate the feeling of stress and tension? Is it possible to make use of the energy spent on stress management and redirect it to be more motivated, calm or even to increase our creativity and efficiency?

Yes, it is possible! All you have to do is learn how to do it and practice it because as in the case of any other skill this ability can be developed. During the workshop participants will first identify the style in which they react to stressful situations and then work out their own method of dealing with difficult emotions.

The workshop Take a breath! will help you:

Acquire basic knowledge related to how reactions to stress occur in the human body

Identify your individual style of dealing with difficult situations

Acquire techniques to manage stress and develop the skill of relieving it

Develop your own techniques to cope with stress and how to support each other within your team

For whom?

The ability to start the day in a calm and conscious manner and end it with the feeling of having managed the time efficiently is sought by many people. Its importance and usefulness are particularly appreciated in situations of sudden change, unfavorable exterior conditions and tensions between people and within teams.

That is why we especially recommend the workshop Take a breath! to:

All those who wish to be more operative, productive without unnecessary tension

Teams wishing to support each other in difficult situations

We work using the following applications/software: Teams, Zoom, skype (depending on the technical options available to participants and organization).

The workshop consists of 5 modules

Course of the workshop

I . Pre–work:

Participants receive a few tasks to complete and familiarize them with the topic of stress

II. On-line meeting:

During an on-line workshop participants take part in a short activity demonstrating various reactions to the same situation. It enables them to identify their own style, which will be the starting point to further work. Then they receive, in a nutshell, basic information on how  human beings behave in stressful situations and basic methods and techniques to deal ad-hoc with stressful situations.
