One of the most requested additions to all of my courses was a section on the topic of managing stress. And so what I hope to share with you in the next minute or so, is just an overview of the topic and some things that have worked for myself, my coaching clients, my students and my patients over the last several decades of clinical practice. This is by no means meant to be a comprehensive discussion of this topic. It's just too massive to cover in a single video, but I want to give you some tools and some strategies and some tips that I think you'll find helpful and they can get you started on your journey of mastering stress. A lot of people are stuck in frustrated, tired, exhausted, fatigued, emotions are welling up and they're really sort of distraught and at a loss for what to do next.

And I want to give you just a few ideas, some food for thought some areas that you can explore further depending on what Which course or courses in mind that you are enrolled in, you'll have access to some additional topics, lectures, interviews, and resources. But as always, feel free to reach out to me I'm happy to give you information and help you in any way I can. So this is an overview of what I'm talking about the next minute or so. The first one is fuel. And how are you feeling fueling your body? What are you putting into it in terms of nutrition, calories, carbohydrates, fats, sugars, sugars a huge problem, and has a variety of derogatory and negative effects not only on the brain, but also on the body.

And just take that to heart if you're feeling stressed out anxious, depressed, sad, angry, a lot of it can come down to what you're putting into your body, and that includes toxins. Are you drinking too much alcohol or caffeine? Are you working in a toxic environment with mold I see a lot of people and patients in my clinical practice that you know are stressed out and feel poorly in it. Turns out that they've been working in a building that's full of black mold, and a variety of other things to consider water contamination, soil contamination, pesticides, herbicides, things that are sprayed on our food. It's a massive topic, but just take that to heart if you're feeling poorly in a global perspective, and also in terms of the context of this presentation on stress management, moving your body is a great way to manage and handle stress.

Many of us sit for long periods of time during the day based on our job function and in discussion. But there are certainly opportunities to get up and move around simple things as putting your printer in a different part of the office. We have to get up to get something when you print it, taking breaks using a Pomodoro technique where you're working for 25 minutes and then taking a short break. really have the power to help you manage not only your day, your productivity but also stress. Next is the mind what what are you putting into your mind? What thoughts are you letting dominate or control your mind?

Are you practicing mindfulness or are you sort of under the A 24 seven and just taking little or no time for yourself to really process, all that's going on around you all the stress all the expectations, both personal and perceived, and then finding gratitude. This is well studied in the literature. And if you haven't practice gratitude, I certainly urge you to try it at least just try it for a week or so. Just when you wake up in the morning when you go to bed at night, just think of a few things that you are grateful for. It doesn't have to be complex or complicated. It could be something as simple as a warm cup of coffee, the bright sunshine peeking through the window, the fact that you have a job or that you're in college, or that you're learning or that you're in a relationship, or that you're just interested in improving your health, your wellness, your longevity, any of those factors, just express gratitude, and even better is to actually write them down in just a small little journal that you can keep beside the bed.

It literally takes us a few minutes. To do that. And the data the scientific data is well established in terms of mood enhancement and as a tool for stress. Management. So, I hope you found this helpful. I just wanted to share a few things that I've found that have worked well over the past several decades of practice and coaching.
