This month, UBC’s Health, Wellbeing and Benefits team has a great line up of sessions aimed at managing time and promoting stress reduction. Join us and take a few moments to build new skills, boost your health and to reflect on how you face the day.
Time is a precious resource. Once it is used up, we can never get it back. We’ve all heard the phrase “time equals money”; in a business setting this can sometimes be the case. We require balance in our lives so that we meet both our job requirements and our personal needs. How can we manage our time at work so that we are satisfied and successful? This session will explore some answers to these questions. Click here to register.
When stressors overwhelm us, we need effective stress management techniques to bring us back to equilibrium. This session explores all aspects of the stress response, focusing on practical tips and tools to bring us to optimal stress levels, helping us to maximize our energy and performance.

Today’s life is fast-paced, with less time just to de-stress. Greater pressure is being put on all of us to do more. The result is that many of us have lost the ability to sit still and simply be with ourselves. This session will help you explore your personal stress triggers and review some practical and easy techniques to make brief relaxation moments a part of your everyday life. Click here to register.
