Stress Management Skills for Real Life: Practices for a Calmer, Happier life: an Audio Course with Julie Peters

Practical skills and guided meditations for managing the inevitable stresses of life so that you get past surviving and start thriving in your work, health, and relationships.

Stress is a common problem for everyone, and it’s estimated to cause 99% of our illnesses. We can’t eradicate stress from our lives, however, nor should we: we can’t grow, learn, or change without some form of stress in our lives. The key isn’t getting rid of it, it’s learning how to manage it so stress can be a friend and not an enemy.

In each lesson of this course, you will learn a practical tool or skill that you can immediately apply to your day-to-day life to create a calmer, more resilient pattern for when stress arises. We’ll talk about mindfulness, the functions of the nervous system, and how to manage emotions like shame, anger, and joy, which can each create their own forms of stress. We’ll even talk about how we can use food mindfully to improve our digestion and maintain a healthy weight while working on our stress skills. Each lesson also comes with a short guided meditation that will help you learn to use the skill. The meditations are yours forever to return to whenever you need them.
