Stress is an unavoidable part of life that we will all encounter at various times, be it due to a one-off event such as losing a job or the break-up of a relationship, or from facing long-term difficulties such as working in a stressful environment or caring for someone who is ill. How well we deal with stress will influence the extent to which it affects our lives.
Maureen Cooper explains why humans are designed to respond to stress in a certain way and why this can even be helpful at times. She goes on to show how to transform our habitual way of responding to stress by training ourselves in compassion and thereby improving our sense of control and wellbeing.
