Wellbeing Wednesdays Episode #31: Stress
“The one about… Stress”
Stress. It seems to be a universal experience and it seems like we know all there is to know about it, but are we missing something fundamental about stress? Could we be in the thrall of an innocent misunderstanding that means all of our attempts to tackle stress, while well-meaning enough, don't really help in the long term? Do we really know where stress comes from, or are we just buying into popular opinion? Is it possible to live a life free from the effects of stress? Under any circumstances?
In an insightful, myth-busting 100 minutes we slowed down, took a step back and examined questions like these, in order to see the big picture and get a completely fresh perspective on STRESS. We structured the evening around the four steps I always use when helping groups and individuals to solve their problems via insight, rather than willpower:
- FOUNDATIONS: Three common, very obvious, hugely disempowering misconceptions most of us have about stress
- MECHANICS: The surprising truth behind how stress actually works: where it comes from & how to experience “stress level zero”
- IMPLICATIONS: What happens when we take our new understanding and apply it to real life situations
- TRUE NATURE: A deeper exploration of how being ‘broken apart’ by extreme adversity can lead to the insightful discovery of who we really are… and a life of calm, joyful productivity and inner peace.

Sit back, relax and listen for your own insights, rather than being told “what to do”. An entirely fresh perspective on stress awaits!
