In the fast-paced world that we live in, we are always encountering situations that can be stressful. Many of these occur at work. Yet stress, and its effects on our ability to do our jobs, is a subject that is often overlooked. The Videotape includes information on situations causing stress, positive versus negative stress, recognizing symptoms of stress, effects of stress on the mind and body, eliminating "stress factors", stress-relieving exercises, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
Excerpt: Stress, its a hazard all of us face. It creeps into ourlives when its time to pay the bills or when we cant find the right tool forthe job. It comes in the form of a memo from the boss, or a set of bad sparkplugs. Even good things can lead to stress. New parents find that out in ahurry. They discover the joy of feedings, and diaper duty. Stress comes for everyone. You know the feeling.Your muscles tense up as a rush of adrenaline floods through your body. Youstart to sweat. Your heart beats like a bass drum. Your stomach tightens asyour blood pressure rises. Now, during what we call positive stress thesechanges are merely temporary. Once the crisis has passed our body resets itselfto normal, getting ready for the next challenge. Look, your bodys physicalchanges are basically a throw back to the old cave man days when we had tooutrun bears and chase down our food. Getting excited is an old survivalinstinct. Positive stress is necessary to our daily living. It helps us buckledown and see things through. Negative stress is not so healthy.
