Stress-free and mindful, 20.-24.9.2021

Stress is a disease of civilization in today's society. It can appear in almost all areas of our lives and, although it can sometimes have a motivating and positive effect, in most cases it is rather harmful and can cause various diseases or syndromes.

So how do you deal with stress? How to keep sane mental health? How to "properly" turn off and regenerate the body and mind? How to prevent diseases and syndromes? How can mindfulness help us live a more fulfilling life?

If you want to know the answers and you care about your mental health, this course is for you!

The main purpose of this training course is to provide you with the know-how needed to handle stress, stay grounded and in the present moment. The training will focus on different situations that provoke stress reactions - these will be thoroughly explained also from the scientific point of view. We will go through various techniques of stress handling and different mindfulness methods will be introduced and exercised. Participants will be actively involved in all the processes, interact and will be constantly challenged in the learning process in a safe environment.

Mgr. Adéla Lamaczová
non-formal education trainer, researcher, pharmacist

Adela has been working around the soft skills since 2014 and by now, she has delivered hundreds of hours of trainings. She figured out her favourite topic by far is creativity so she is always sneaking in a bit of colours and flipcharts to make trainings more visual. She loves to see the energy flowing in the training and actively involves the participants into the session to make dynamic but safe environment for informal learning. Her aim is to use real-life examples to make the topic understandable and applicable to the daily life.
