Good Stress/Bad Stress (Morning workshop)

Venue:  Carrickpherish Library, Gracedieu Rd, Carrickpherish, Co. Waterford

Date:     Wednesday 27th February

Time:     10am – 1pm

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.

Self Compassion and Kindness for Myself (Morning Workshop)

Venue:  Carrickpherish Library, Gracedieu Rd, Carrickpherish, Co. Waterford

Date:     Thursday 12th March

Time:     10am – 1pm

Do you ever feel cut off from others and feel like other people are somehow better able to cope?   Is it difficult to find time to look after yourself, do you tend to criticise and judge yourself more harshly than you would others?  Do you concentrate more on mistakes and failures rather than your strengths and successes?  There is another way.  Developing self compassion and learning to be kinder to ourselves is possible for everyone.  It can help us to discover who we are even in times of difficulty.  This workshop will explore what self compassion is and how to overcome barriers to developing it.
