Stress is a fact of life.

It’s important to know that we can’t always control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it. Research has shown that the effects of stress and exercise are greatly affected by the way we think about them. Mice who are free to exercise as much as they want get healthier and happier; mice who are forced to exercise the exact same amount, however, get weaker and sicker. And - though lab trials of forced exercise wouldn't make it past an ethics board - research does indicate that we humans function the same way.

In this program, you will experiment with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) methods and mindset reprogramming. We will also look at breathwork, meditation, mindfulness practices and other evidence-based strategies for regulating our neurological state in order to build resilience. Another core component of building resilience is by intentionally practicing hormetic stress; this is the ideal level of exposure to stressors. Underexposure to stress leaves your body unchallenged, while overexposure could lead to health problems. Hormetic stress is that “sweet spot” where stress is beneficial for us.

Build new skills the smart way

Learn the basics, have insightful conversations, and use evidence-based daily habits to reinforce the fundamental sub-skills necessary for mastery:

Choose how you look at life
Reflect on what you are choosing to believe, and whether those beliefs are serving you. Or if it's time to choose another belief.
Build an optimistic perspective
Use evidence-based strategies to help you bounce back from difficult situations even stronger than you were before.
Stop worrying
Find the upside of stress, and use rational evidence-based tools to stop worrying.
Each program follows a simple and effective evidence-based approach to skills mastery:

Assess yourself

Reflect on where you currently stand and discover the practical components necessary for mastery of this skill. 

Learn sub-skills

The skill is broken down into 3 essential sub-skills, each of which is the focus of one learning workout. You'll do 1 workout every 2 weeks over the next 6 weeks. 

Talk about it

Have an insightful conversation with your colleagues about how to implement each sub-skill in your day-to-day.

Build micro-habits

Along with each workout, design your own micro-habit to start putting your learning into practice on a daily basis.
