Dealing with Stressful Situations


Life is full of stressful situations, and your brain is built with a system to deal with them: Fight or flight. This prepares your body to deal with the threat, so it’s great if you’re hiding in a kitchen full of velociraptors or leaping from a building that’s about to explode with a fire hose tied around your waist. But it’s not always so helpful in everyday situations. If stress gets out of control, it can make you mentally and physically ill.

If you find yourself wanting to fight or flee when you’re faced with a deadline or with meeting your significant other’s parents, you might need to change the way you handle stressful situations. With preparation and practice, you can learn to manage the fight-or-flight response and tackle stress in a better way. That’s why you need this course.

By the end of this course, you'll be able to:

  • Identify the triggers that cause you stress
  • Choose better responses to stressful situations
  • Implement ways to increase your resilience
