    Module 1: How Stress Affects the Mind-Body

    Description

    Many people with rotten stress management techniques end up needing professional help. In some cases, this cry for help comes for the ravages of acute stress; in other cases, the health professional is seeing the impact of chronic stress.

    Chronic stress is a contributing factor to conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure), ulcers, and atherosclerosis (closing of the arteries, typically around the heart.) While acute stress generates anxiety, worry and is associated nasty emotions such as anger.

    The module helps you understand the distress associated with stress.

    Learning Objectives

    • Discover the impact of acute and chronic stress on the body.
    • Know how stress impacts the normal functioning of the mind.
    • Know the relationship between stress, illness and immune suppression.
    • Understand how increasing stress levels impact work performance.

    Application Assignment

    • Produce a personal profile documenting your intellectual, emotional, behavioral, contextual and physiological stress symptoms.

    Module 2: Using the Breath To Relax

    Description:

    For many, there is a vague understanding that when anxious, one breathes faster and shallower. At extreme levels of stress, some start breathing “like a dog” and will even hyperventilate.

    However, the reverse is also true, breathing slowly and deeply relaxes the mind and the body. However, few people understand how to use the breath to relax.

    This module will show you how to use the deep breath technique to quickly relax.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Discover the relationship between the breath and feeling anxious or feeling relaxed.
    • Experiment with slow breathing to control and reduce stress.
    • Practice using the deep breath technique to reduce anxiety.

    Application Assignment

    • Practice using the different variations of the Deep Breath Technique to reduce the impact of stressors in our life.

    Module 3: Mastering the Fine Art of Progressive Relaxation

    Description:

    Stress is associated with a physiological mechanism known as the “fight or flight” response; meditation is associated with the exact opposite mechanism, the relaxation response. So while stress results in anxiety and worry, meditation generates peace and serenity.

    Meditation has been used for thousands of years in the East, but it is relatively new to the West. Since it is relatively new, most people don’t understand its benefits. This module explains the primary benefits for learning meditation. Benefits that include but are not limited to reduction of stress and anxiety.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the physical and psychological benefits associated with the regular practice of meditation.
    • Discover the positive aspect of meditation on the mind and body.
    • Learn the access steps necessary to enter a meditative state.

    Application Assignments

    • Practice accessing the meditative state. While meditating, choose between several different types of meditation objects. Explore how to better this special state of mind.

    Module 4: Learning How to Mediate

    “People Don't Learn From Experience” — J. Edward Deming

     

    It's true, most people DON'T LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE and they practice a skill, but SHOW NO IMPROVEMENT OR SLOW IMPROVEMENT. The reason why? They don't use reflection. Something very powerful but rarely taught. 

    What is Reflection?

    1. The mental process that allow you to monitor your behavior to determine what's working and what's not (see story below).

    2. The way we monitor practice to keep improving it.

    3. A learned process accelerating the drive to mastery.

    4. A way to become conscious of automatic behaviors.

    Learning reflection in this online course you will help you to:

    • No make the same mistake over and over again,
    • Optimize important behaviors, and
    • Allow smarter practice,

    Bottom line: Reflection is a learnable method to determine what's working and what's not. It's a way of not doing the same thing, the same way; but always expect better results (The classic definition of managerial insanity).

    A Personal Story On The Importance of Reflection

    To my lasting regret, understanding of reflection came much too late in life. What happened was this.

    When I was 52 years old, I accidentally learned about reflection. I happened to be sitting in a lecture at Korea University in Seoul. The course delved into world religions and this particular lecture dealt with Buddhism.

    The professor mentioned that Buddhism had a long tradition of learning through reflection. This aroused me from my normal state of lethargic mindlessness and I asked the professor, “What is reflection exactly?”

    She replied that it was a mental process where you periodically step back and think about an experience and then figure out what went well and what could have gone better. And then she said, “The school of life teaches; but only if you are willing to reflect on experience.”

    Here I was, a creature of the university. Much of my life was spent in a library with my nose in the textbook or in a state of confusion reading scholarly research journals. And yet, I had never been exposed to one of the most valuable tools of learning ever.  — Murray Johannsen, Course Developer & Instructor

    "When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”  — Kennedy Family Motto


    Many problems bedevil us. We face rejection, job loss, lost friends and love ones, but still we must go on. In psychology, resilience is the capacity of people to cope with problems, issues, and catastrophes. 

    Underlying all success is the mental toughness to overcome defeats, losses, problems, obstacles, mistakes, the critics, the naysayers, the pessimists, the complainers, and those who say it can’t be done. The fundamental truth: nothing rolls down the hill until after it long has been pushed up hill. 

    Anything really worth doing, is going to be difficult. 

    And since most everyone will face difficulties at some point of life, it is important to understand how resiliency works and how mental toughness can be enhanced.

    Learning Objectives

    • What resilience is — what it isn't
    • What it takes to increase your mental toughness
    • Why all great success rests on a foundation of resilience
    • The nature of control in achieving success — both internal locus and external.
    • How not to respond to adversity—the trap of learned helplessness.
    • Take assessments, perform exercises and do application assignments
