Part 2: Understanding the Neuroscience of Stress

Can stress harm your everyday actions and reactions? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. When our nervous system goes into a fight, flight, or freeze state, we see fewer options, which can compromise our problem-solving abilities.

By shifting a little focus to your well-being, you can enter a calmer, clear-headed, optimal place. This mindset shift can help give you the necessary perseverance and motivation to keep going.

During this workshop, you will learn about the neuroscience of stress. Our goal is to help you be at your best, even during times of uncertainty and change.
