Stress yourself

Stress is not your enemy; it is an opportunity for self-development and growth.

More detailed information

Stress is not your enemy; it is an opportunity for self-development and growth. If you use it in a smart, sustainable way, it will help you to push yourself without burning yourself out. This presentation helps you to change your mind about stress. Talking points: 


  • Your attitude about stress alone influences your health and wellbeing. How can you change negative thinking styles and cultivate a positive mindset when you experience challenges? 

  • Too much or longterm stress can be dangerous, but the right amount serves as a powerful stimulus for growth. How do you assess what the correct amount is?  

  • What are the best strategies and techniques to stay focused, productive, optimistic, and calm when you are under a lot of pressure? We look at food, lifestyle, and peak performance techniques like mindfulness meditation. 

We often default to unhealthy, counterproductive behavior when we feel stressed. It doesn’t have to be that way. When you apply the principles in this presentation, you will start to view stress in a much more positive way and experience what stress can do FOR you (instead of TO you).
