Transform STRESS into positive energy and momentum optimizing your peak mental performance.
STRESS, STRESS, STRESS!! When you hear the word STRESS what comes to your mind? What do you think about? When I’m out doing talks and trainings on STRESS, I often ask this question and you know what answers I generally get? People say when they hear the word Stress they think of something bad or negative, like financial stress, job stress, relationship stress it goes on and on. But did you know that stress is the brain and bodies response to ANY demand and that not all stress is bad? Let me repeat that: STRESS is the brain and body’s response to ANY demand and not all stress is bad.
Unmanaged stress can have a taxing effect on the brain and the body. The opposite is also true. When we have the right tools and training, we can learn how to MANAGE STRESS make a MENTAL SWITCH and harness stress for better and happier performance. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to take the same thoughts or words that come to mind with the word STRESS, and fuel and channel those into better and happier performance? Wouldn’t that be awesome!?
Thanks to science, technology, tools like Biofeedback and my Transforming STRESS method, we are able to measure, monitor and see how our brains and bodies respond to stress. With that feedback, we can learn how to change our physiological activity, like heart rate, muscle tension, and brainwave activity. Which are all extremely important for optimal performance.
Everyone’s heard of the ‘Fight or Flight’ response, right? Stressful situations cause a release of hormones that trigger hormonal and physiological changes, hence the “Fight or Flight” response. Think of a recent stressful situation. Maybe it was preparing for a game or presentation or getting a bad phone call from a loved one. Do you remember what you felt? Was your heart racing, palms sweaty, stomach a little queasy? These changes are the response of the sympathetic nervous system preparing you to fight the threat or flee to safety.
Did you know? When this type of stress response is triggered your physical and mental abilities can increase. Your brain begins to process what you perceive more quickly, your vision and hearing become more acute.
Another type of response that our elite performers tap into often is called the challenge-response. It’s similar to ‘Fight or Flight’, but our body prepares us for the challenge we are facing. Our adrenaline levels, heart rate, and breathing rate increase but different hormones are released, the “feel-good hormones are released” resulting in a less fearful state. The challenge-response gives us an energy surge and boosts our momentum improving our ability to perform under pressure, this is known as “the zone” state.
