COPING WITH STRESS
Stress is your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. This response is natural and designed to keep us safe. As humans have evolved over the centuries, our reliance on this system has lessened. However, our stress response hasn't evolved
to adapt to our modern life.
So, when faced with a situation that can be challenging our brain doesn't know it isn't life threatening and sends the same signals to the body. When this is done regularily it can be harmful and disrupt our normal bodily functions.
"The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another."
HOW DOES A SESSION LOOK LIKE?
This module is broken into four sessions each lasting 60 minutes. We discuss what stress is, the role it plays in our lives, how it is affecting us now and how it can impact us in the future. We guide you in becoming aware of where you hold stress in your body and the patterns you get stuck in which are contributing to even more stress. You will learn coping strategies to help you in the moments of overwhelm and work on building a plan to thrive in the future.
In each session you are encouraged to look within to discover your own abilities to cope and thrive. This contributes to building new neuro-pathways as we repeatedly apply techniques to reduce stress and increase positive emotions.
