If you experience stress in your live, regardless of the cause or its intensity, this course is for you.
Chronic stress not only impairs our brain functions whilst we are stressed, but more importantly, it does lasting damage to our brain, as it kills braincells in our hippocampus. this means that, even if we we’re not stressed anymore, the damage will still be there.
Luckily, there is a lot we can do, as we will see in this course.
First we will analyze stress. where it comes from, what it does, the different types of stress, etc
After that, we will go over the 4 different types of dealing with stress. I call them 'relief strategies' For each of them I will give 10 concrete examples of what we can do to activate the benefits of that strategy. So 10 examples for 4 strategies: that's 40 ways to deal with stress.
But it doesn't end here. you are highly encouraged to leave your own ideas and examples for each of the strategies, so that this course becomes a co-creation where you help define the final outcome. You will be responsible for the “+", in the “40+ easy ways to deal with stress".

My personal experience
As an expert in human behavior, I'm regularly asked to give lectures or workshops on stress. It's increasingly an issue. This course was born out of dozens of interactive workshops that I led, where real people just like you sat down and created a personal action plan to help them deal with pressure and stress. It is packed with very concrete things anyone can do to help manage their stress levels. there are so many of them in this course, actually more than 40, as the title kinda gives away, So that you can find what works for you.
But it doesn't end here. you are highly encouraged to leave your own ideas and examples for each of the strategies, so that this course, just as the workshops I lead, become a co-creation where you help define the final outcome of the course.
