Good Stress/Bad Stress  (FREE Workshop 10am to 1pm) in The Recovery College South East, Greenshill, Kilkenny: February 28th  Many people believe that all stress is bad, but you may have heard that there's "good stress" and "bad stress." Do you know what people mean by that? We rarely hear people say, "I'm really feeling stressed—isn't that great? These days, many aspects of life can feel highly stressful, affecting our ability to think clearly, to relax or to look after ourselves. Whilst small amounts of stress can prompt us to action, too much stress over a long period of time can seriously affect our emotional and physical health. This introductory workshop supports you to look at the causes of your stress, giving you practical activities and suggestions that can help you to reduce the impact on your life. Places limited so book by calling The Recovery College South East on 056 7703666
