Work-life Balance and Stress Management Course Content

Work-Life Balance Training AM

Introduction

Work life balance is the art of creating harmony between the different aspects of your life, with the intention of making you more productive and happier, at the same time.

Work life balance is about balancing the forces that act upon you and resolving the apparent contradictions between the competing demands made upon your time and energy.

Question for you: What do you want to gain, by coming on this course. Finish the following sentence:

During this training, I would like to know, how I can.... (Finish this sentence with your own thoughts)

Make the distinction between "standard of living "(WORK/ MONEY) and "Quality of life" (PERFECT BALANCE).

The error of chasing standard of living at the expense of quality of life.

Quality of life is the primary goal and standard of living is a part of it.

Quality of life requires BALANCE of these six factors

  • Standard of living (Money: Material wealth)
  • Mental Balance (positive mental attitude based on optimistic outlook)
  • Physical Balance (health based on sleep nutrition and exercise)
  • Balanced and Harmonious human relationships (Based on harmonious habits and gaining cooperation of others)
  • Freedom from fear and worry: Based on controlling the focus of your mind and crisis prevention rather than crisis management
  • Balance between activity and rest. (Based upon the principle of The Golden Mean)

The Golden Mean Principle

The golden mean is the idea that the middle ground is the good.

There can be three amounts of anything:

  • Too much (an excess)
  • Too little (Insufficient)
  • The right amount (The Golden Mean)

The trick in life is to find The Golden Mean

  • The right amount of stress, (not too much, but not too little either)
  • The right amount of work, (Not too much, not too little)
  • The right amount of rest, (Not too much, not too little)

The 80 / 20 principle verses Universal Perfectionism

80% of your results will come from 20% of the causes.
80% of your stress will come from 20% of the causes.

Four decisions for you to make

  1. Re assess and organise your priorities: Which are your major goals. Which are your minor?
  2. Reject the idea of SUPERMAN/WOMAN
  3. Perfection does not exist and it may be a mistake to expect yourself to be perfect
  4. Recognise that work is a long-distance race, not a SPRINT TILL YOU DROP
  5. You can sprint for a short distance or run a marathon. But nobody can sprint a marathon. You need to pace yourself
  6. Reject universal perfectionism and let go of the non-essentials

Stress Management Training PM

Stress - what is it?

Stress is a mental and or physical reaction to a real or imagined event.

Stress may be objective: It may be external (heat, sunlight work) or
Stress may be subjective: fear, worry, anger, irritation.

Two fundamental types

  • Objective: Physical/Heat/Cold/Noise/Long hours
  • Subjective: Irritations/Frustrations/Annoyance/Dislikes/Anger

How to manage objective physical stress

Hans Selye General Adaption Syndrome - The best "Theory of stress".

Manage the Intensity duration and frequency of stressors

The "Optimum zone"

How to manage subjective, internal stress

Your own thoughts can be the cause of stress: Your imagination can work for you or against you.

Your reactions are changeable by you. You can change they way you respond to situations from negative to positive.

Take charge. You have the power to direct your thoughts feeling and reactions to events.

Decisions for you to make

  1. Manage the intensity and frequency of objective stressors
    Steps you can take to reduce the negative effects of stress.
  2. Notice and control the content of your own mind
    Steps you can take to improve your mind set.
  3. Take control of your own emotional reactions
    Steps you can take to improve your emotional intelligence.
  4. Take time to relax your brain!
    Steps you can take to relax and improve your peace of mind.
  5. Decision matrix and problem solving
    Always think on paper
  6. Time management
    How to prioritise properly

Summary and action plan

The Training Method

The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:

  1. The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
  2. Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
  3. The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
  4. All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
  5. Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
    (At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).

Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!

Training course content was excellent, very informative. Gave more tools to adopt and implement for the great good and my own personal development. Trainers presentation was excellent and fun.
