Understanding microstress to fight it and start responding to it



When people think of stress, they think of "highlight" moments: delivery of major projects, important meetings, and difficult decisions. These are all moments that are well recognizable and that we prepare for in the right way. However, the workday is punctuated by many other small, unforeseen "negative" moments: a bad phone call, a wrong message, an unpleasant comment, and many others that, on their own, would be manageable but, all together become huge. Accumulating, these "micro" stresses can have even serious consequences on our health, both physical and mental.
 
What is meant by microstress? What consequences does it have on mental and physical health? And how to recognize and avoid it?
 
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss this topic with Robert Cross, Professor and author of The Microstress Effect (2023), to understand better and recognize the harmful potential of microstress in their lives and ultimately, how to get rid of it.

In particular, we will explore:
- how to identify and act on 14 specific microstresses
- how to become more resilient in concrete ways
