What you will do
In this ten-week transformative journey, we will understand the impact of stress and calm on how we think and feel and why this actually happens. Each week will have a specific focus as detailed in the course outline. Depending on the focus of the week, there will be one or more guided activities that will help you to experience calm. The neuroscience behind why they have the potential to help you will be explained. There will be specific questions for you to answer (in your journal). This will help you to understand what works, what doesn't, what you are curious about, and what you wish to develop or practice further. Here is a brief summary of each:
These are capsules of essential neuroscience research designed to be easy to understand, relevant and practical.
These are activities that will help you understand stress and calm and what works for you and what doesn’t.
Personal Reflections Questions
This is a series of questions for you to reflect on, to help you to understand the impact that different activities have on you.
At the end of each week, you will be encouraged to develop a personalised toolkit of activities to explore or develop further. Why personal? You need to select what matters to you, what helps you, and work on that. There are many, many techniques because not every technique works for everyone. So finding what works just for you is a very important part of the process.
Specific sources of inspiration relevant to the topic and where needed.
Books, blogs, people, places and more that you can view in your own time if you want to learn more, develop a skill etc.
