How to Turn Stress Into Action

Three in four Britons felt so stressed at least once during 2018 that they felt overwhelmed or unable to cope, according to the biggest survey conducted into the impact of stress.

Stress is a healthy reaction from our brains that is meant to be uncomfortable. It’s nature’s way of letting us know that something is wrong, and we need to act to put it right. But it isn’t always a helpful response.

It is helpful when we use this stress response to act and form a plan. But the difficulty is when our emotional thinking brains worry and ruminate over the message, causing us to feel stressed and anxious. The key thing is to recognise that we have a choice in how we respond.

Using The Chimp Model, we demonstrate how we can learn to recognise the messages coming into our brains and rather than react as we have always done, start to respond in the way that we want to and turn stress into action.

Session Structure

Our stress into action session provides an insight into the neuroscience of stress and anxiety and demonstrates how our minds process information and how this can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety. The session will help delegates to learn to apply The Chimp Model, to learn skills and techniques for managing any current stress and anxiety by turning this stress reaction into an action. Delegates will form take away plans during the session to apply to their personal and professional lives.

Workshop Objectives

This session will help delegates to:

  • Understand the neuroscience of stress
  • Recognise and manage immediate stress
  • Recognise and manage long-standing stress
  • See how stress can be turned into action


By the end of this session delegates will know how to:

  • Manage immediate stress by following the neuroscience
  • Recognise and remove long-standing stress
  • Form plans to turn stress into action
