Course Description

Stress is a part of many of our lives, but too much stress can make us unproductive, frustrated, and can even have an impact on our physical and emotional lives. This comprehensive course provides an in-depth understanding of stress, and differentiating between ‘positive stress’ and ‘negative stress’. It equips you with the ability to recognize your stress triggers, analyze your stress-handling methods, and introduce practical relaxation and stress management techniques.

The course is particularly beneficial for educators, given the fundamental role they play in guiding students towards managing stress. According to the NIH and CDC, stress can detrimentally affect the physical health and academic performance of students, thereby emphasizing the importance of the educator’s role in fostering resilience and stress management skills in the classroom. 

During this course, you’ll explore the scientific impact of stress on the body and learning and delve into applicable techniques to reduce your stress levels. Educators will research, analyze, practice, and evaluate a “Tool Box” rich with a diverse range of stress reduction tactics such as meditation and breathing, aromatherapy, exercise, sleep, hygge, music, art, dance, humor, gratitude, and random acts of kindness. By applying these tools and techniques, you will enhance your capability to manage stress for yourself and your students. The final project will involve self-reflection on the gained insights, showcase evidence of applied concepts, and develop a lesson plan incorporating the newly acquired knowledge for classroom or educational application.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Define and understand the concept of stress, its types and its physiological, cognitive, and emotional impact on individuals.
  • Analyze the specific stressors in the educational environment, with a focus on those that directly affect educators and students.
  • Evaluate the impact of chronic stress on educators’ professional performance, personal life, and overall well-being.
  • Identify personal stress triggers and coping mechanisms currently in place, evaluating their effectiveness.
  • Develop a personalized stress management “Tool Box” utilizing evidence-based strategies like mindfulness, meditation, exercise, gratitude, diet, exercise, breathing, and other healthy lifestyle habits.
  • Design lesson plans or strategies to help students manage stress, foster a more conducive learning environment, and enhance academic performance.

  • “The action-oriented nature of the course kept me engaged and allowed me to apply what I learned in real-time.”

  • “I liked that I got a lot of information and materials that I can apply not only to my individual life, but to my students life’s as well through adding things into my own lessons.”

  • “I liked that the resources shared were accessible and useful. I learned a lot about stress and its effects, and I found ways to help alleviate some of the stress in my life. I thought there was a good mix of articles and resources.”

  • “The suggestions were helpful and not over complicated- meaning they did not add MORE stress- they really did help. The reading was informative and relevant to each stress management strategy.”

  • “Everything! I loved all of the tools introduced in the toolboxes. I found the articles informational and interesting. I loved how this class encouraged me to try some things that I have never done before, and dig deeper into some things that I had tried on the surface level.
    I like how the practices were backed by science and research, and how I was encouraged to really reflect on how they made me feel. The organization of this course was perfect, because I could choose the toolbox that worked best in my schedule for that week or that day.
    I liked that there were so many options to choose from to meet the requirements of each toolbox, so that I could really explore the things that interested me.””

  • “This course was a great reminder that we need to slow down and take care of ourselves to be the best in the classroom.”
