In this course, we look at how the brain responds to different kinds of stress and how our beliefs contribute to perpetuating the stress response. We also look at cardiac coherence and how it can propel us into a more positive emotional state and prolong our life.
In this lesson, we look at how the brain responds under normal arousal and under acute and chronic stress, the role of the amygdala in the stress response, and we look at neurotransmitters and neurohormones released under stress.
In this lesson, we look at how our beliefs about stress can mitigate the stress response and prolong our life, how reframing stress can actually help us use stress to our advantage. We also look at little-known ways to relieve stress.
In this lesson, we look at how the true driver of performance is not whether we're in a relaxed or activated state, but whether we're in a positive or negative emotional state. We look at how most stress reduction techniques just move us from a negatively activated state to a negatively relaxed state. We also look at how cardiac coherence gets us from a negative to a positive emotional state, how we create coherence using simple breathing techniques available to everyone.
