What you will learn:
Adopting a stress-is-enhancing mindset can improve performance and alleviate anxiety. Scientific research has shown that short interventions that frame stress-as-enhancing can lead to a change in the body’s physiological response and better health. In this Elective, we will talk about the two types of stress mindset, how to shift your mindset to one that is more productive, and some new ways to think about everyday challenges.
We will also discuss practical strategies for reducing and managing stress covering some quick fixes (less than 5-minutes) and longer-term approaches.
The aim of this 90-minute session is to help participants change their stress responses to maximize performance.
