There has never been a more important time in history to gain emotional control and become mentally strong.

In 2017, I gave a popular TedX Talk called "Why What We Feel Matters More Than What We Think." In it, I discussed why in the Digital Age, Emotional Intelligence and Fitness will be more critical than ever to the quality of our lives, and the future of our planet. Since then, I've had hundreds of requests to expand the talk and create a course on how to be emotionally strong, and gain emotional intelligence.

You see, even before the world had ever heard of COVID-19, we were already in the middle of a mental health crisis. Worldwide, hundreds of millions of people were struggling with anxiety and depression. Now, long periods of physical isolation, the loss of loved ones, the loss of jobs, financial insecurity, and the daily stress of our new "normal" are accelerating feelings of distress, fear, and anxiety. Just as we have had to make major changes to our lives to stop the spread of this virus, we also need to take urgent steps to safeguard and optimize our mental health.

We're here to help you.

I, along with my co-creator Dr. Dan Rutley, created 8, affordable courses to teach people how to gain control over their mindset and emotions, develop mental resilience, feel calmer, and be happier. We called it The 8-Hour Therapist.

For this course, we've bundled 3 of the 8 courses from our 8-Hour Therapist program, along with our Guided Relaxation and Visual Imagery apps, into a special COVID-19 Emotional Control course that gives you the tools and techniques to both navigate this new normal, and to emerge even stronger on the other side. Although we don't include specific references to COVID-19 in the course, the focus is very much on reducing stress and anxiety, achieving relaxation, shifting your mindset and behaviour, developing positivity, and practicing self-care and self-acceptance.

Course content:

  • Controlling Your Emotions

  • Master Your Anxiety

  • How To Love Yourself

  • Guided Relaxation Audio-Visual Technique

  • Progressive Self-Relaxation Audio-Visual Technique

  • Positive Visualization & Imagery Technique

** 2 downloadable guided workbooks, chock full of Challenges and Exercises to apply your learnings, are included for you in this course (a combined $40 value on their own)

Benefits from taking this course:

  • Reduced anxiety, stress, sadness, and anger

  • Increase mental and emotional resilience

  • Greater emotional calmness

  • Stronger, better, and healthier relationships

  • More confidence, self-esteem, and self-acceptance

  • Increased optimism and positive outlook

  • Feel less lonely and more connected

  • Improved IMMUNE system functioning

Dan's is the voice you'll hear throughout the course (it's mellow, soothing, and makes for really easy listening).

COVID-19 has truly put us at psychological war with ourselves; with our own minds. At a time when we need it the most, our natural, healthy desire to physically connect is forbidden. It presents you with an opportunity to learn how to mentally thrive during and after times of stress and crisis, which present a life time of benefits. We use a step-by-step approach to teach you how.

Whether you're a healthcare worker, a student, or a parent at home - - this is a challenging time that has shrunk both the world, and the space we occupy in it. We're here to help you create a sound mind, in a sound body.

- Dr. Natasha Sharma

Due to the situation surrounding the global spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19), and subsequent Quarantine and Social Distancing laws, many people these days are feeling an increase of negative emotions: Fear and Anxiety, Uncertainty, Sadness, Surreality, even Anger.

The key is to be able to tell the difference between "healthy negative emotions" and "unhealthy negative emotions." In this module, we'll teach you exactly that. Healthy negative emotions require our acceptance and strength. UNHEALTHY negative emotions just drag you further down in life. The good news is this: You can choose how you feel - independent of your life circumstances. We will teach you HOW!

Master Your Anxiety

There has never been a better time to be compassionate, forgiving, and appreciative of yourself. These are trying times, no matter your perspective. If you don’t love, accept, and put You first, it will be difficult to experience a sense of calm and being in control we so need right now. In addition, you won’t be able to love anyone - or be loved by anyone - in a way that’s truly healthy. But we’re not taught to do this. Instead, we are generally taught to treat others better than we treat ourselves. This module offers practical lessons and useful tips for how to start loving and accepting yourself today...deeply and without conditions. We also learn what it is to be self-interested, why it is the absolute key to creating your best relationships with yourself and others. Spreading more love starts right here!

You will learn how to:

  • Be stronger, more confident, and more motivated in life

  • Be less self-critical

  • Set healthy limits and boundaries with other people

  • Stop being treated poorly by others!

  • Create healthier, more satisfying relationships

  • Stop being a "people pleaser" and needing everyone else to "like you"

  • Feel less lonely and more connected

  • Feel happier and create a more positive outlook in life
