Trigger awareness

18feb2020-relaxationOn Tuesday 11th February, Year 12 students participated in a 45-minute workshop on relaxation and stress management. This was led by Dr Patricia Bautista Pardo from the Asociación de Integración Social Calidad de Bida. The aim of the workshop was to teach students to understand the triggers of stress and develop coping techniques.

This session was especially beneficial to Year 12, as they started their first mock A-Level exams the following day and they were feeling very anxious about it. Dr Patricia Bautista Pardo introduced the different types of stress and their consequences. She explained to them that there are many stressful agents in our everyday life and that we need to identify them to achieve a psychological and physical stability. Students were taught the Jacobson's method, which can be used whenever they need it or when they are experiencing stressful situations. They recognized the intimate union between muscle tension and a tense mental state and learnt to relax tight muscles of their entire body as a means to reach a deep state of inner calm. The feedback from the students was very positive, declaring it "interesting and useful" and one they would definitely recommend it to other students.
