Stressed?

Learn Ways to Get Your Stress Under Control with LinkedIn Learning

Stress—we all have it—and the pandemic has not done anything to help, but it’s what we do with it that will determine if it becomes fuel or foe. Did you know that April is National Stress Awareness Month? It is the perfect month for it, as spring has begun and nature is rejuvenating; there’s no better time to take a moment to check in with yourself.  By now, you are aware that LinkedIn Learning (LiL) has thousands of videos to help with your professional development. Well, they also have videos and courses to help with your personal development. In honor of National Stress Awareness month, let us raise your awareness of these options available.

Just have a few minutes?

Check out a quick video with some quick tips to Reduce Stress from LiL’s Happiness Tips course, or get your Stress in check with tips that focus on Mindfulness. Each of these videos is less than six and a half minutes, so you can get that little motivation in just minutes.
