Ways to tackle stress


A stress management event with a difference is being held at the Health and Wellbeing Innovation Centre next month.

The event, which is being hosted by Kernow Coaching on December 2, will feature an interactive presentation from adventurer and entrepreneur, Pete Bray.

To date, Bray is the only person to have paddled a kayak unsupported from Canada to Ireland. He also spent 15 years in the SAS.

Drawing on these experiences, he will discuss such issues as ‘mind over matter’, ‘how does the brain work in times of stress’, and ‘coping mechanisms to deal with stress’.

This will be a taster session looking at what makes us voluntarily (or involuntarily) go through stressful situations and how to deal with them.
