Do you want to learn different ways to reduce your stress levels?

In this interactive online workshop with lots of exercises and break out rooms you can get to know other students and you will learn stress management strategies that you can easily implement into your everyday life. After the first module, you also have the possibility to get connected to another participant of the workshop to do something nice together in Munich (1:1 Matching).
