Conscious Connected Breathing
7 Lectures 05:04

Conscious Connected Breathing (CCB) is always the first tool in Stress Management. Why? Because you carry it with you everywhere. (If you do not have your breath with you right now how in the world are you reading this???)

What few know is that - although you breathe anyway - by deliberatelychanging your breathing pattern in a certain way you can change how you see and feel the world. You can change how things impact you...like a ton of bricks or like a light breeze. Now THAT is worth learning and practicing, right?

Preview 00:31

The oval symbol is a trigger reminding you to breathe in a way that benefits you anywhere and everywhere.

Preview 00:22

If you need convincing...here are the many benefits of Conscious Connected Breathing.

Preview 00:48

  • Did you know that we were programmed from birth to breathe in a circular fashion? And for some reason, cats also breathe in a constant unbroken circle...even while sleeping! Watch and see.
Preview 00:35

  • The reason we stop breathing in a circle in our childhood? Stress! Holding breath is an attempt (and a not very successful one) to become numb, to leave the body, to avoid feeling.
4-5: The Connecting of Breathing
00:42

Practicing Conscious Connected Breathing so it works for you, not against you. To put it simply, CCB helps you make peace with a stressor so you do not have to suppress it. The less you suppress the less unfinished business you pile up. It is MUCH easier to make peace with something now than later. By the way, "making peace with it" does not mean you agree with it...it just means you did your best and are now letting it go.

4-6: Time to Practice Conscious Connected Breathing
00:50

  • Record what you experienced during this session in your all important Stress Management Journal. By the way, every time you do CCB you can have different experiences. Any experience is not without meaning, so write it down to help you see what it might signify. Remember: You are learning something you can use forever, but you are also overcoming conditioning to hold your breath or to breathe shallowly...so by practicing and taking notes you will get better and better. AND you will be helped more and more.

The Stress Cycle
8 Lectures 07:50

A three second announcement.

6-0: Stress Cycle Section
00:03

Here begins an exploration of how this whole stress thing works. It is imperative you understand it because it either works for you or against you. You can change when it works against you and make it work even better for you.

Preview 01:14

The Stress Cycle helps you become more aware so you a) notice, and b) can apply a skiil or tool to "hotspots" - meaning sudden attacks by stressors. What are stressors? Oh, you will find out soon enough.

6-2: Stress Cycle: Stressor Influence on Body, Mind, and Emotions
01:00

Here are some insights that will spring you from the resistance trap caused by ignorance. You may still drop into 'resistance' but you will snap out of it faster with the Tools & Skills in this course.

6-3: Stress Cycle - Resistance
00:53

We all resist a stressor at first, even stress management warriors! The question is how widespread is the resistance and what tools and skills do you have to move past resistance?

6-4: Stress Cycle: Adaptation
01:23

We have all been 'exhausted'. If you play sports you have been exhausted. If you have worked manual labor you have been exhausted. If you have raised children you have been exhausted. If you have started your own business you have been exhausted. This is not about that kind of exhausted although those things could have brought you to this point of 'exhaustion' in the stress cycle. Here we are talking about staying in a state of resistance so long that you cannot keep it up any longer. For example, if you were told to hold your arm straight out and keep it there, eventually the muscles in your arms are too exhausted to hold your arm up any longer.

But when 'exhaustion' happens in the stress cycle we are talking the kind with serious consequences...like body or body function damage. This means one step closer to permanent damage or death.

6-5: Stress Cycle: Exhaustion
02:14

You will now be able to speak with intelligence when discussing stress and the difference between stressors and distress.

7-1: What IS "Stress" Exactly?
00:47

Ahhh, now you see dynamically how stress and stressors are related. The stressor initiates the stress in you. Not all possible stressors do - some you do not even notice. We are selective based on our past recordings, the situation and how we deal with those certain ones. We can also be unaware (ignorance) that something is stressing us while it is (or numbness through habit or bad habits such as alcohol or marijuana or painkillers)..

7-2: How Stress and Stressors Are Related
00:16
+
Body-Emotion-Mind Connection of the Stress Cycle
4 Lectures 03:25

Key information on the three portals of stressors that are always activated by any stressor that affects you. You may not notice one or more or, in many cases, ANY of the three, but they are all there and are reacting whether you know it or not.

Preview 00:51

You may notice stress in your body - headaches, backaches, etc.

You may notice stress in your mind - worry, anxiety, panic, obsession

You may notice stress in your emotions - angry, sad, afraid

But the truth is: Any stress registers in all three areas - body, mind and emotions - whether you know it or not.

8-2: P.E.M.
01:08

AND you probably are unaware of it most of the time...but don't feel too bad - most don't either. Now for the good news: You will from now on!

8-3: P.E.M. Majors
00:12

AND, it is the PEM connection that is good news and bad news: Good news because if one alerts you it makes you aware of the other two. The bad news...well not so bad...but you have to resolve physical impacts physically, emotional impacts emotionally and mental impacts mentally. In other words if a stressor causes you to react to it mentally you will not be able to resolve it emotionally. You have to handle it mentally. This is okay for you but when - say - a couple has a disagreement over a stressor in their lives, one partner is mentally and the other emotionally affected they will not communicate about it well or be able to resolve it easily unless they are AWARE of this and can accommodate the other partner and honor where they are coming from.

00:38

There are a myriad of answers as to why one should take a stress test. What is your reason for taking a stress test? Well, it could be you want to know what is going on inside you a bit. Perhaps you also know that an accurate diagnosis is worth its weight in gold - especially if you wish to do something about it.

10-2: Purpose of the Dallmann-Jones Stress Test
01:24

Know how to take theD-J Stress Test.

10-3: Directions for Taking the Dallmann-Jones Stress Test

Dangers of Distress
6 Lectures 03:23

What IS distress? How important is it to clearly define? Let's just say that KNOW YOUR ENEMY is just as important in Stress Management as it is in war. Perhaps this IS a war...a war against ignorance about stress, about having Tools & Skills to meet your enemy and level the battlefield. Sometimes we are known as Stress Warriors - other times adjustments are as delicate as a snowflake falling...subtle.

Detachment
16 Lectures 14:16

Learn about a commonly misunderstood term and a word often misused in certain contexts...basically in the concept or human emotion known as "love".

You can choose how much you wish to know and then do this. 33 is highly recommended, of course, but only you know what you are ready for. Trust your instinct.

As a counselor, radio personality and professor I have helped thousands find their purpose, liberate their potential from overstressing, and have healthier, happier and more prosperous lives. I know what I am talking about.*

Guaranteed - your money back if not satisfied!

See my Udemy Courses to transform your life. Isn't it about time?

*I lived in a penthouse on Marco Island for three years before deciding to buy a 4 story house with an elevator across from the Gulf of Mexico beach. I also own a home in the country on a river in Wisconsin.

I have a beautiful wife. My houses are paid for. My cars are paid for. I have no loans. I pay off VISA and MC the day I get the bills. I now spend my time coaching others and developing courses on Udemy.

I have taught this course to over 1,000 people paying over $200 for it. I have coached Fortune 100 and 500 CEOs and mid-managers, high-security defense contractors, the United States Marines (no kidding!), models, actors, musicians, prisoners, veterans, addicts, graduate students and regular citizens just like you and me.

Why do I bother? It isn't money! It is simply because of a character flaw and a pet peeve:

Flaw: It hurts to see others suffer or live in restriction when I know there is help.

Pet Peeve: I cannot bear watching great human potential go down the drain.

I have published 13 books now, but three are my favorites: Living a Stress Free Life - which sold out twice in the 20 major US airports; Shadow Children - about at-risk kids growing into adults - thousands of these sold to colleges and universities; and, Primary Domino Thinking - a book on personal development and problem-solving that came out of my counseling practice when I realized that life is mostly making decisions and few, if any, clients had decent tools to make them effectively...which causes a lot of pain in the world.

One of my favorite gigs was a five year stint in a call-in Monday morning radio show: "K107.1 Arrive Alive Mondays!" The DJs there at the station called me "Dr. Stress" which they started broadcasting before I got to the station - thinking it funny to say, "Dr. Stress is in the building" upon arrival, and "Dr. Stress has left the building!" at the end of the show. I asked them, "If you were a doctor how would you like to be called, 'Dr. Sick'?" I had to outlast three generation of DJs before I got them to change the name to "Dr. Zest" - at least a more positive name if they had to have their catchy names for the sake of radio. Getting up at 5AM - no, but being on the air and taking phone calls about stress was just a blast.

I have taught online for about ten years and love it. I like to convey meaningful, life-transforming, powerful information to put people in the driver's seat of their lives. It's a dream: I am making it happen.

I plan on doing a series of online courses on stress management because I know it gets at the core of life's issues and problems that cause pain in people, and by solving those issues it creates not only relief but joy in many cases. And my philosophy is that we were born to have a good time.

In my psychotherapy practice I also did industrial consulting for large corporations. and, as I mentioned, I flew several times out to Oceanside, California, and taught stress management to the Marines at Camp Pendleton. On my brochure I stated: "If I can teach stress management to the Marines I can teach it to anyone!"

Somehow I gained a reputation in defense and high pressure situations and also did stress management workshops with top-security defense contractors in California, Dayton, and Indianapolis. I was also stress consultant for Headquarters of Charter Communications (formerly known as STAR CABLE), and a Fortune 100 executive I cannot disclose.
