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.
