          Events, people, and circumstances fill our normal daily lives—along with a certain amount of stress. Stress can be positive or negative, depending on how we perceive the stressor and it impacts our physical, social, spiritual, and emotional health. Stress is also affected by the social and cultural context in which we live. However, with awareness, stress can be managed and reduced. Interventions such as nutritious food, physical activity, and social support along with modalities including journaling, massage, therapy, meditation, imagery, biofeedback, art and dance therapy, and time spent in nature can help us reduce the stress we experience and create a healthier life. The outcome of this certificate is to for the learner to describe the physiological, social, and psychological aspects of stress; examine the relationship between stress and health, nutrition, and physical activity; identify causes and health effects of workplace stress; and explore modalities to reduce and manage stress.
